GIRLS CHALLENGING THE GENDER RULES
In 2019, we draw from in-depth analysis of 37 girls going through early adolescence in the three Sub-Saharan African Cohort countries: Benin, Togo and Uganda.
Our analysis shows that all the Cohort girls are noticing, questioning or rejecting expectations around their behaviour and roles in at least one area of their lives, from views about household work to what is considered acceptable female behaviour and future aspirations.
Our 2013 report looks at how daily life involves negotiating a series of risks and hazards.
As the girls in our study turn six, many are now either attending a pre-school facility or are at primary school.
Our 2011 Real Choices, Real Lives report looks at roles and responsibilities within the family.
Our 2010 report looks at the lives and experiences of the girls in the light of the Millennium Development Goals.
Now in its third year, the study continues to follow the lives of girls and their families living in nine countries.
Our 2008 report has a special focus on the girls from the small West African state of Benin.
