|Title: ||The Girl Child|
|Authors: ||Asamoah-Hassan, Helena R.|
|Issue Date: ||27-Jun-1996|
|Abstract: ||The girl child has always been with us. Many years ago the girl child had very few problems. Civilisation and development has now compounded her problems and made it difficult for her to live a a very sucêessful life.
The Convention on the Rights of the Child says that the child should not be discriminated against by virtue of his! her parentage, race, colour, SEX, language,religion,political inclination of his or her parent,ethnic or social origin, disability, birth or status. However,the girl child today suffers discrimination in many countries, from the earliest stages of life through childhood and into adulthood. Most of these discrimination can be surmounted if concerted efforts are made by Governments,NGOs and individuals who matter, including you and I.|
