The equal treatment of girls in society around the continent needs to be a priority for all African leaders, if we wish to fully emancipate ourselves as a continent. Factors such as the access to health and education for girls must be a priority for all governments in the African continent.

It is pertinent that we ensure the equal treatment of girls to create a society which benefits all as we progress as a continent.
