Girls and The Dream Gap – Plan International’s survey report

21 Oct 2017 1:35 PM | Jean Murray (Administrator)

Plan International Australia conducted a national survey of girls aged 10 to 17-years old to find out to what they aspire and what prevents them from following their dreams.  They called the report The Dream Gap because girls modify and curtail their aspirations when they experience gender discrimination. Girls want to succeed but they face barriers that grow more profound as they enter adulthood. Plan reports 98% of girls say they do not receive equal treatment to boys.   Their main dream?  Gender equality.
