No Country for Young Women

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Girls all over the UK don’t enjoy their rights, and their quality of life and emotional wellbeing is tied to where they live.

Two 2016 reports published by Plan International UK and the Young Women’s Trust revealed that a generation of girls and young women are facing increasing harassment in school and online, experience mass financial hardship and feel unsafe on the streets.

In this talk, hear young women and policymakers discuss how to challenge these negative attitudes and how to better meet the needs of girls and young women.
