Every child deserves an education. Sadly, young girls and women ― more than half of the world’s population ― are rarely given the same opportunities as boys to learn, study and succeed in life.


Around the world, 65 million girls don't go to school. Out of the 774 million who haven’t received any education, two-thirds are women. There are 33 million fewer girls in primary school than boys. And education does save lives: If every woman in the world had a primary and secondary education, then childhood deaths would be cut in half.


To celebrate International Women’s Day this Women’s History Month, Huffington Post rounded up 55 photographs of girls going to school around the world.


The pictures feature girls of all ages from Nigeria, Syria, Pakistan, France and many more getting an education. Whether they are walking to school with friends or seem excited about learning something new in class, these photographs are proof that all kids should have the right to get an education, despite their gender.
