If the attention grabber was only a sentence or two, add one or two more sentences that will lead the reader from your opening to your thesis statement.

Have you ever wanted something really badly? A car? Money? New Clothes? For girls all over the world, their wants are much simpler. They want to have an education and get the same rights as boys. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states in Article 26 that everyone has the “right to an education.” Around 125 million children around the world do not go to school. A startling 70% of that 125 million are girls. Countries around the world need to protect their children’s right to an education and provide equal access to education for girls.
