gender education

URI: http://eige.europa.eu/taxonomy/term/1166

Definition

A necessary part of curricula at all levels of the education system, which would enable both girls and boys, women and men to understand how constructions of masculinities and femininities and models for assigning social roles – which shape our societies – influence their lives, relationships, life choices, career trajectories, etc.

The Council of Europe recommends reviewing all aspects of educational systems, in order for them to promote gender equality.
