it only takes a girl.

I love the implication that we can solve many of the world's problems simply by educating girls. Of course, it won't be quite that simple, but it will be a big step in the right direction.

Also was surprised at the statistic that 1/4 of the developing world's girls are not in school. I was surprised because I believe that is actually an improvement over previous stats. That means that currently, 3/4 of developing country's girls are being educated, and that gives me hope. Not that we don't have a long way to go, because even with education, girl children face forced marriages at an early age.
