Global Inequality Robbing Millions of Children of 'What It Is to be a Child'

Deirdre Fulton, staff writer

Global inequality—"a vicious cycle of disadvantage"—threatens the lives and futures of tens of millions of children around the world, according to a new report from UNICEF.

The annual State of the World's Children report, released Tuesday, warns that unless serious steps are taken to narrow the gap between the rich and poor, 69 million children under five will die from mostly preventable causes, 167 million children will live in poverty, and 750 million women will have been married as children by 2030.
