We at UN Women declare that empowering women and girls is the greatest human rights goal of our time. We say that all women and girls should live their lives free from violence and we pledge to leave no woman or girl behind.

The monograph explores gender inequalities in health, education and politics in Africa and how these have been exacerbated by poverty, war and conflict.
