Ensuring Quality Education for Girls during COVID-19: An Elusive Priority?
In recent years, girls' education has been a top priority for governments, funders, and global bodies. And yet, during the COVID-19 pandemic, girls have lost out again. While inequalities have been exacerbated for both girls and boys, gains previously made for girls’ education are slipping away.
IIEP’s upcoming Strategic Debate will present an overview of the impact of COVID-19 on girls' education and will facilitate discussion on the pivotal role of gender norms in education. The Debate will look at how these norms are impacted by crisis, and ask how progress in shifting gender norms can be protected when the pressure rises. How can we ensure that girls' education remains a genuine priority in times of crisis and what happens in countries experiencing multiple crises?
