Girls often face gender-based discrimination that puts them at risk of poverty, violence,  ill  health  and  a  poor  education  and  deprive  from  basic  human  needs. UNICEF discussed about current situation, deprivation and exploitation of girls from diverse perspectives in Bangladesh, they are fed last, and less than their brothers. They are more vulnerable to trafficking, sexual abuse, rape, acid throwing and other forms of exploitation, including child labor and child prostitution. Many are married by age 15 and their families must pay heavy dowries. Dowry violence, such as murder and Induced suicide, still poses real threats to girls of Bangladesh. The Bangladesh Health and Injury Survey reported that more than 2,200 children committed suicide in one year and suicide is the biggest killer among this age group (UNICEF 2005).
