The need to increase girls’ enrollment is an important reason for giving greater policy and programming attention to women teachers, but it should not be the only reason. This advocacy brief – sixth in the Gender in Education advocacy series – takes a look at issues such as the often challenging conditions women teachers face in schools, accessibility and relevance of teacher training, and career development opportunities for women. It highlights the need for a broad gender equality perspective when developing policy and programmes for women teachers.
