Education is crucial for every human in this world. However, women had been excluded from education for years and in some places in the world they still are. In spite of the progress that has been made in fighting for women’s equal rights, it seems that there’s still a long way to go.

According to Unicef, estimated 31 million girls of primary school age and 32 million girls of lower secondary school age were out of school in 2013. Sub-Saharan Africa has the lowest proportion of countries with gender parity: only two out of 35 countries.

The following pictures prove what is like for a girl to go to school in different places of the world:
