Mozambique Revokes Law Barring Pregnant School Girls From Attending Day Classes

The law in Mozambique that had barred pregnant school girls from attending day classes, but ordered them to go to classes at night, has been revoked.

The Ministry of Education says the misogynist decree of 2003 had responded to a specific context of the time, but that time has changed.  He said that time was characterized by violence in schools, and high numbers of teen pregnancies and girls dropping out of school.

The revocation takes effect from the beginning of the next school year.
