Gender equality and the advancement of women
Gende equality is a global priority to UNESCO. Indeed, education is still not universally available and gender inequalities persist. A major concern in many countries is not only limited numbers of girls going to school, but also limited educational pathways for those that step into the classroom. In this context, UNESCO published a global report called ‘crack the code’ that aims to decipher the factors that hinder or facilitate girls’ and women’s participation, achievement and continuation in STEM education, and what can be done by the education sector to promote girls’ and women’s interest in, and engagement with, STEM. UNESCO office in Brasília aims to translate the report to Portuguese in order to make this evidences avaiable to the Portuguese countries speakers.
