Eliminating school-related gender-based violence (SRGBV) is critical to sustainable development. Safe and gender-sensitive learning environments are spaces where girls and boys can learn to develop mutual respect, an understanding of gender equality and speak out against discrimination and gender-based violence. Schools can play a transformative role in shifting harmful gender norms and discriminatory practices. Through the examination of gender norms and unequal power structures between students, teachers, parents and the wider community, subtle forms of discrimination and deeply entrenched inequalities can be addressed and key barriers to education removed.

Hosted by the Global Working Group to End SRGBV, this webinar is designed for practitioners, researchers, educators, and NGO workers working or interested in this area. Key areas explored include:

  • Evidence from the field: insights from research in Sierra Leone and India
  • Approaches, concepts and lessons on measuring gender attitudes among school-aged girls and boys
  • Learnings on measurement and interventions addressing gender norms and SRGBV
