Nevertheless, many children--particularly girls in rural areas--do not attend school. The country's literacy rate reveals sharp gaps in education, both in terms of gender and location; while country-wide literacy rates are estimated at 39.6% among women and 65.7% among men, the female literacy rate in rural areas is only 10%. </li></ul><ul><li>Source: www.state.gov/r/pa/ei/bgn/5431.htm </li></ul>
