Description

Gender equality in education increases national economic growth and reduces poverty. Yet despite its importance and impressive achievements in closing the gender gap, particularly at the primary level - huge disparities remain. In many developing countries, gender inequalities in access to education, transition to postprimary levels, and learning and earning outcomes are still large. This volume, based on a 2007 World Bank-sponsored symposium, identifies binding constraints, draws lessons from country experiences and suggests the way forward for achieving gender equality in education and empowerment of women.
