Education and Gender Equality: 2016 Education Deep Dive Report

Abstract:

Across the world, education remains the most powerful tool for improving the lives of women and girls. Important advances have been made in gender and education equality in the last several decades, but millions of girls continue to live without access to quality education and opportunities to develop personal agency. The United Nation's 2015 Sustainable Development Goals enshrine inclusive, equitable, and quality education and the empowerment of women and girls as a global focus for the next ten years. Facing this challenge, the 2016 Advanced Leadership Initiative Deep Dive on Education and Gender Equality at Harvard University identified both key strategies and outstanding challenges in the global fight for gender empowerment in education.
