3 November 2017: Book launch - Reaching for the sky: Empowering girls through education

Urvashi Sahni
Study Hall Educational Foundation and Brookings Institution, Washington, D.C.,

Keynote Remarks:
Vrinda Sarup, former Secretary, School Education and Literacy, Ministry for Human Resource Development

Organised by:

How can gender equality can be achieved in a patriarchal society through education? How can girls learn to be equal and autonomous persons in school as part of their official curriculum? And, how can they use this learning to transform their lives and those of their families?

Reaching for the Sky illustrates how education can be truly transformative when it addresses the everyday reality of girls’ lives and responds to their special needs and challenges with respect and care. The insights and lessons from this book have important implications for wider policy-making.
