Gender inequality doesn’t make sense on any level. Promoting gender equality can reduce extreme poverty and hunger and boost shared prosperity for girls and boys, women and men, around the world.

Years of conflict, poverty and gender inequality has made going to school difficult and often dangerous for girls in Afghanistan. In 2009, 95 percent of girls did not go to secondary school. CARE is working with secondary school age girls and their families and communities to keep them in school - helping them reach their potential and follow their dreams.

The first-ever study on men and masculinity in the Middle East and North Africa by UN Women and Promundo surveyed 10,000 men across Egypt, Morocco, Lebanon and Palestine. While unequal attitudes dominate, a significant minority support some forms of equality between men and women, especially if they saw their fathers doing the same.
