Overview

Because I am a Girl: The state of the world’ s girls 2014: Pathways to power – Creating sustainable change for adolescent girls

The eighth report in Plan International’s annual State of the world’s girls series, Pathways to power: Creating sustainable change for adolescent girls, asks what will shift the unequal power relations that bolster gender discrimination, injustice and inequality for girls and women in some form in every country in the world?

Through research, interviews and the voices of girls themselves, the report investigates the notion of power. Who holds it? Where and how does it operate? Does power always protect the status quo and reinforce existing inequalities, or can it be a force for positive change?
