Girls Action Plan in India
The European Union’s Gender Action Plan II is coming to an end in 2020. As an organisation working with and for children and youth with a focus on girls, Plan International believes that it is essential to consider age and not only gender in the next Gender Action Plan (GAP III). Girls, in all their diversity, have specific needs that are distinct from those of adult women, and their priorities should be heard and integrated in the GAP III, as “nothing should be decided for girls without girls!” (young woman consulted, India). In order to identify their needs and expectations, we conducted a consultation with girls and young women in three countries, including the Republic of India. This country specific brief presents the results of the consultation in India, and lays out girls and young women’s priorities on several themes for the implementation of the next GAP III in their country through the European Union Delegation.
 Please find the Girls Action Plan presenting the results from the three participating countries on https://plan-international.org/eu/Girls-Action-Plan

Because We Matter
Asia is home to more than half of the world’s 1.1 billion girls. Gender inequality in many parts of the region means that girls are often systematically disadvantaged and oppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. Girls’ development is hampered by child, early and forced marriage and high adolescent pregnancy rates. Across the region, gender- based violence against girls and women constitutes a serious and widespread rights violation, particularly with regard to domestic violence, marital rape, and trafficking in women and girls.

Hear it From the Girls - Asia and COVID-19
Asia is home to more than half of the world’s 1.1 billion girls under the age of 18. The COVID-19 pandemic currently threatens decades-worth of the critical progress made in gender equality and girls’ rights. Girls in the region are facing increasing cases of gender-based violence and child marriage, disruption of education, limited access to sexual and reproductive health services, shrinking employment opportunities, increased psychological distress, and an exacerbated burden of domestic work.
