Education is strongly embedded in the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), in ways that reflect this rich relationship between gender equality and the right to education.There has been undeniable progress made in improving gender parity in education in the three decades since the entry into force of CEDAW. Progress on enrolment, however, should not mask the fact that girls and women continue to be denied their rights throughout the education cycle, and still face huge discrimination and disadvantage in terms of access, progress, learning and their experience in schools.
