Before the pandemic, 130 million girls were already out of education (Unesco, 2021). Post-pandemic, Unesco estimates that a further 11 million will not make it back into the classroom. With high-profile examples of girls being excluded from basic education, including the Taliban denying girls access to schools and higher education, are we losing momentum in the fight for gender equality? And what can be done to help them achieve their greatest potential, given extensive school closures?
