Madonna will serve as a presenter alongside Gloria Steinem, Bishop Desmond Tutu and other musicians and public figures.

"Sixty percent of the children in the world not in school are girls," Madonna said in a statement. "Two-thirds of the world's illiterate are women. I do not accept this. We need to change this and we will change this."

In addition to Beyoncé and J.Lo, other scheduled performers include Florence + the Machine, Ellie Goulding, John Legend and Timbaland.

The concert will broadcast live from Twickenham sports stadium to 150 countries.
