“When we support the growth and empowerment of women and girls, we raise the quality of life for everyone.

“Leadership training. Single sex education, whether it be girls' schools or single-gender classrooms, give girls the opportunity to take on leadership roles and interact with women in positions of leadership. A survey conducted by the National Coalition of Girls' Schools found that 93% of the women surveyed felt that they had more leadership opportunities and that 63% felt they were well-prepared for the "real world.”
