Author(s): Muskan Mustaqeem

Abstract: The effects of the COVID-19 epidemic on girls' access to education in the Gopalganj area of Bihar, India, are examined in this study. Concerns about the global spread of COVID-19 have led to its detection in the Gopalganj area of Bihar, India. The education of children, particularly females, is negatively affected by this pandemic. Most of the students impacted by this epidemic are girls from rural areas. These rural girls from low-income families were already at a disadvantage before the epidemic hit, and now they have even less of a chance of getting an education or the tools they need to continue their studies at home. However, no studies were located that focused on rural girls' access to education in the Gopalganj area of Bihar, India, or on COVID-19. To investigate the effect of this pandemic on adolescent girls, this paper employed a primary research methodology, conducting fieldwork in Gopalganj district, Bihar, and carried out open-ended interviews with 50 Adolescent girls aged between 10 to 18 years old. This research paper seeks to shed light on the impact of the COVID19 pandemic on girl child education in Gopalganj, Bihar. By analysing the current situation and exploring the experiences of girls during the pandemic, it aims to provide evidence-based insights to guide policymakers, educators, and stakeholders in formulating targeted interventions and strategies to mitigate the adverse effects of the crisis on girl child education. Ultimately, this research aims to contribute to the broader discourse on education, gender equality, and inclusive development in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic in India.
