Send a Message: ALL Girls Have the Right to an Education!

Right now, 130 million girls are out of school.

You wouldn't be where you are today without an education - But because poverty is sexist, 130 million girls across the world are denied this basic right.

We cannot afford to squander the potential of 130 million girls to cure diseases or end wars, invent brilliant technology or revolutionize an industry... or simply to access opportunity.

But it's in our power RIGHT NOW to help these girls get access to an education in the next 4 years.

Poverty is sexist. If you care, ACT. Add your name to our letter, and we'll deliver it in-person to leaders this International Women's Day, March 8th.
A letter to leaders

You couldn't be where you are today without a good education.

But because poverty is sexist, 130 million girls across the world are denied this basic right. Indeed, if the number of girls out of school formed a country, it would be the tenth largest on the planet - bigger than Japan or Germany.

All children deserve a good education, but in the poorest countries girls are denied it more often than boys. Education is vital for moving out of poverty. Every additional year of school that a girl completes increases her future earnings, which is good for her family, her community and her country.

We cannot afford to squander the potential of 130 million girls to cure diseases or end wars, invent brilliant technology or revolutionize an industry… or simply to access opportunity.

We are coming together and uniting across our divides to get every girl into school and to make sure she gets a quality education once she's there.

But we need you to do the same.

Your education helped you to get where you are today - and it is in your power to help millions of girls to get theirs. Please act now, with the right policies and the necessary funds.

Show us that politics can work for the people - starting with the people who need it most.
