This report examines progress and persistent gaps in
efforts to achieve gender equality in and through education
since the adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for
Action in 1995. In light of this, it identifies priority actions to be
implemented within the Beijing+25 process, the Generation
Equality Forum's Action Coalitions, and the Sustainable
Development Goals. It shows the importance of adolescent
girls' education and provides recommendations for collective
action – in particular on three priority levers: Comprehensive
sexuality education; the participation of adolescent girls in
science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM);
and the development of adolescent girls' leadership – drawing
on consultation processes among international
organizations, civil society and adolescent girls in the run-up
to the Forum. In all areas, specific levers, intersectoral
approaches and multi‑stakeholder partnerships are promoted.
