dc.description.abstract It has been shown that educating girls has powerful externalities, which, if scaled, can act as a catalyst for socioeconomic development. However, there are many gender inequality factors that prohibit girls from accessing and succeeding in educational pursuits. This report explores the South African example, looking specifically at the Cape Area Panel Study, to find whether these gender inequality factors are present and if so, what effect they are having on educational outcomes. en_ZA
