African countries must tackle girl-child plight
This was the submission of participants at the roundtable discussion, held by the Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC) at the sideline of the United Nations Commission for the Status of Women 62, recently.
They agreed that a holistic approach to civil society advocacy can enable the girl-child attain her utmost aspirations, and that the sensitisation of rural women is key to empowering women and cascading development chances to girls.
It was also agreed that CISLAC is on the right track in terms of advocating girl-child empowerment through policy and legislative intervention, along with global activism and awareness raising events.
