The Rights of the Girl-child in Ethiopia: Challenges and Prospects

In Ethiopia, the Girl-Children, similar to many other countries, are the most marginalized and discriminated groups of the society. In many parts of the country they are victims of, inter alia, abduction, early marriage, FGM, maltreatment, trafficking, rape etc, etc. The problem often conventionally entrenched in the nation?s social, cultural, economic, political and traditional schemes. Furthermore, poverty and illiteracy are other reasons that worsen the woes of the girl-children in Ethiopia. The ratification of CRC, ACRWC and the enactment of other laws is a step forward to the protection of the rights of the girl-children. Nevertheless, even though these legislative developments are made so far by the nation, to alleviate the problems, there is still a lot remain to be done. The book, therefore, examines the status-quo of the girl-children in Ethiopia through evaluating all the rights endowed to her. In addition to its contribution to efforts in promoting for better protection, it intends to serve as a national contribution to the global study on violence against girl-children. It also will have a paramount significance for other researchers on same or related topics.
