GEMR 2018 Gender Review

08-03-2018, GEMR |The 2018 Gender Review published today by the Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report to mark International Women’s Day, 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.

The global launch of the 2018 Gender Review takes place today at an event in New York co-hosted by the United Nations Girls Education Initiative (UNGEI) and the Malala Fund.
