A Compilation of Research on Rural Girls' and Young Women's Issues

Girls Action Foundation compiled this research review in order to increase access to recent research about Canadian girls and young women who live in rural communities.

The intention behind this publication is to provide research-based support for initiatives that empower girls and young women. Research often provides important rationale, credibility, and legitimacy to girl-specific projects and programs. This publication is a quick and easy way for those who work with, and care about, girls who live in rural communities to access research that can strengthen and validate the important work that they do. 
This review is part of a larger project, which shines light on the potential of rural girls and young women to contribute to community development. The project engages youth and rural organizations to advance the leadership and community involvement of rural young women.
