Harassment in schools shows girls their education is less important

Susie McGuinness, 17, a Senior Section member from Glasgow and a Girlguiding Advocate, has blogged for Scottish Women’s Aid about the challenges that sexual harassment in schools poses to girls’ education.

Susie’s blog marks the UN project ‘16 Days of Activism’ against gender-based violence from 25 November – 10 December 2015. This year’s theme is Make Education Safe for All. Check out Susie’s blog here.

In association with the UN 16 Days of Activism campaign, The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts has launched a resource for units to use to share the message that #GirlsAreValuable and fight back against harassment and violence. Find out more here.
