Since the World Conference on Women in Mexico in 1975, Bangladesh has been at the forefront among the least-developed countries (LDCs) in addressing gender disparities. The country's achievements in education and gender parity in education, has also been remarkable. However, despite its success in achieving gender parity in many areas, some sections of the population have been left behind. One such section is female students in madrassah schools.
A madrassa teacher is arrested for alleged sex abuse on an 11-year-old boy in Munshiganj’s Gazaria upazila. Another sex offender of the same case is now on the run.
