This study aims to 'deepen a collective understanding of critical issues that plague girls' education in Nepal'. It is meticulously researched, well-presented and thought provoking. The study finds that gender parity in education has not improved the trajectory of progression toward gender equity and equality. A bonus in the book is a thorough account of the life situation of Nepali girl children. This book is bound to lead to soul searching by policy makers, international and national organizations, educationists and WID experts, among others. It is a must-read for those invested in speeding economic development and in empowering Nepali girls.
