Millions of girls remain out of school.This article claims that the gender gap has narrowed but progress is starting to stall. There is also an article entitled “Gender equality within reach: some progress made, but challenges remain” on Darfur.

There is an interview with Phumzile Mlambo – Nguka, executive director of UNWomen, entitled ” progress towards gender parity still slow and uneven” and another on gender violence looking at humiliation. This form of gender violence is on the increase in Zimbabwe and other African countries.
