Paintings of Girls


There are many different types of art depicting girls. Some artists paint them as children, while others focus solely on adults. Portraits of girls are common. Artists include Petrus Christus (ca. 1460) and Juan de Flandes (ca. 1505). Others include Frans Hals (Die Amme mit dem Kind), Diego Velázquez (Las Meninas), and Jan Steen (The Feast of St. Nicholas, 1660). Paintings of girls include those by Johannes Vermeer (Girl with a Pearl Earring, Reading a Letter, at an Open Window, and Albert Anker (Girl with a Domino Tower). In 1883, Camille Pissarro painted Portrait of a Felix Daughter.

Inequality in education

While the report points to global inequalities in education, there are many factors that contribute to this disparity. For example, poor rural girls have an average time spent in school of only one year, while rich urban boys typically spend 11-12 years in school. National governments also need to show greater political commitment to ensure girls receive an education. In some countries, poverty is so severe that girls may engage in sexual relations with men in order to pay for secondary school.

Stigma of girl-child pregnancy

Among the underlying causes of adolescent girl-child pregnancy is the negative stigma attached to the unintended event. It is often associated with an unmarried teen’s lack of motivation or irresponsibility, increased sexual activity, or moral failing. While stigma is not universal, it can be especially pronounced in developing countries. In particular, stigma associated with early pregnancy is closely linked to poverty and a lack of education.

Stigma of girl-child e-girls

The world’s problems have not been solved yet but the girl-child is still a largely disadvantaged group. Stigma against female children, culture and religion prevent many girls from completing their schooling. These girls are kept at home or married off early, and they are often denied the quality education, healthcare, and employment opportunities that they deserve. However, there are some young girls who manage to break out of the shackles of gender-based violence and try to build a bright future.

Status of girl-child in Victorian literature

There is much discussion about the status of the girl-child in Victorian literature. Children are a central feature of literature, but the era also reflected the complex social realities of the period. The Victorian era saw women denied the right to vote, to own property, and to sue for wrongful death. But as the Industrial Revolution pushed women into paid employment, child mortality rates dropped considerably. Victorian literature remained a powerful expression of the changing gender and sexual roles of women.

Status of girl-child in modern day

The status of girl-child in today’s society is deeply rooted in the way society views women. Girls have a significantly higher risk of malnutrition, disease, and stunted growth than boys. Their labor is also undervalued and invisible. This societal and cultural conditioning reinforces the notion that girls are less important. In many cases, this misperception has led to unintended pregnancy and other complications.
