A new report, released by Plan International, examines the rights of
girls throughout their childhood, adolescence and as young women. The
'Because I am a Girl: The State of the World's Girls 2010 - Digital
and Urban Frontiers' report looks at the prospects and perils facing
girls on two of the 21st century's fastest growing areas - the boom in
city populations and the explosion of IT and communication technology.
While there are great opportunities, prejudice and poverty is
excluding millions of girls from taking advantages of the
possibilities on offer. Urban poverty, lack of proper housing and
sexual harassment can make many girls feel unsafe.
