Despite recognised efforts to improve access of girls and women to education, many still face numerous barriers to access learning opportunities, ranging from basic education to higher education level. This ESRC-DFID-funded research provides valuable evidence on strategies that can help to eliminate gender inequalities in education. Beyond ensuring that every child – both girls and boys – is in school and learning, it highlights new approaches to how gender equality in and through education can be measured, which is crucial to achieving more than just gender parity in education. This paper is a resource for international development education and gender professionals, practitioners, funders and researchers interested in: research impact on gender and education; measuring gender equity and education in a development context; gender, data and education; raising learning outcomes and girls; seeking to promote girls learning and education; education systems; and teacher partnerships, gender and education.
