Building peace in the minds of men and women

UNESCO fast-tracking girls’ and women’s education

About

Too many girls and women are still held back by social norms and traditional school practices infl­uencing their educational right and opportunities. But we know that their education is the most powerful investment to make for our collective future.

Her education, our future is UNESCO’s drive to accelerate action for girls’ and women’s education by leveraging political and financial commitments, as well as leadership for women and girls. It will contribute to the UNESCO Strategy for Gender Equality in and through Education (2019-2025) and its three pillars aiming for better data to inform action for gender equality in and through education; better legal, policy and planning frameworks to advance rights; and better-quality learning opportunities to empower.
