This report is published by Plan International for the purpose of bringing global attention to the fact that progress towards meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) is being hampered by a continued lack of investment in girls and young women. The report begins with the premise that the condition and position of girls' lives matters, and that the impact of conflict on girls is far-reaching and goes beyond their experiences as either combatants or victims of violence. It intends to show how conflict affects girls differently from boys and how their rights are ignored, their responsibilities changed, and their lives altered by war. It describes how discrimination against girls is in place before the fighting begins and remains after it is over. The report also examines the implications of conflict for girls' health, girls' education, gender roles, and relationship dynamics.
In January 1998, following the seizure of GHB near a college campus, the Office of the Attorney General convened the Emergency Campus Summit on Date Rape Drugs. Summit participants - including representatives from colleges, law enforcement, rape crisis centers, students groups, public agencies and the medical professions - discussed ways to prevent the influx of date-rape drugs from becoming a crisis. Averting the Crisis arose out of those discussions. This report contains a number of materials to help you act on this important issue. The Executive Summary contains an overview of the report and suggested uses of the document.
