Today is #DayoftheGirl and I want to talk about barriers girls are facing to getting an education in our country right now.
Earlier this year, a report by @NWLC laid out some disturbing facts. These are just a few.
1 in 5 girls ages 14-18 reported being sexually assaulted. The rate among LGBTQ girls was even higher.
Widening that lens - nearly 1 in 3 reported experiencing either sexual assault or other violence.
More than 1 in 3 girls of color reported that they’ve been called a racial slur.
And, nearly 1 in 7 girls reported being absent from school because they felt they would be unsafe at school or on their way to school.
We must address these issues. You can read the full report here: nwlc.org/wp-content/upl…
