10/11/2012 -- CNN -- "Make schools safe for girls everywhere" Jennifer Buffet and NoVo Foundation praise Equality Now's Adolescent Girls' Legal Defense Fund on International Day of the Girl.

"When a 13-year-old girl in Zambia was repeatedly raped by her teacher, the Adolescent Girls Legal Defense Fund supported the girl's court case against the teacher who raped her and the headmaster who knowingly allowed the assaults to occur. In 2008, the High Court of Zambia ruled that the Zambian government is responsible for protecting girls from sexual assault and providing recourse to victims. Schools everywhere must enact systems that protect girls and hold teachers accountable."
