2018 Gender Review out now

The 2018 Gender Review published by UNESCO’s Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report to mark International Women’s Day on 8 March, shows that only 44% of countries are fully committed to the cause of gender equality in education through international treaties.

The Gender Review states that governments are the primary duty bearers for the right to gender equality in education and the first line of defence for ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all. In addition, it highlights the importance of teacher training and codes of conduct in overcoming gender stereotypes and tackling gender-based violence and recommends comprehensive sexuality education programmes to raise awareness of gender power relations.
