At 10, a girl arrives at a vulnerable point in her life. She must negotiate a tricky transition to adulthood, with its rapid changes in body and brain, and dramatic shifts in family and social expectations. Although risks abound for both girls and boys, gender discrimination makes these worse for girls in almost every way.  Public policies often focus on young children or older adolescents, failing to adequately manage the potential risks 10-year-old girls might face.If her rights are not well protected, through appropriate laws, services and investments, the chance to bloom in adolescence and become a fully fledged adult forever slips away.The world has already done well in many ways for the 10-year-old boy. It is past time to do equally well for the 10-year-old girl.
