The Girl Effect


  • When a girl in the developing world receives seven or more years of education, she marries four years later and has 2.2 fewer children.
  • More than one-quarter of the population in Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, and sub-Saharan Africa are girls and young women ages 10 to 24.
  • The total global population of girls ages 10 to 24 – already the largest in history – is expected to peak in the next decade.
