Gender mainstreaming in education
The policy brief summarizes: the institutional framework for gender equality in education, and proposals for a gender-sensitive education policy.

The policy brief “Inclusion of a gender perspective in the pedagogical process” was produced in the framework of the Equal_Gen project, as part of the project’s advocacy activities for the promotion of gender equality.

The content was based on literature research and data analysis, as derived from a series of trainings with a target group of teachers of all levels, in formal and non-formal education, implemented by the Diotima Centre from September 2022 to October 2023.

Given the discrimination and inequalities identified in a multitude of practices within the educational community that have a decisive impact on the development and subsequent path of students, a gender mainstreaming strategy in education and in all areas of educational practice is a necessary condition to ensure that the needs of all students are taken into account in an equal way, regardless of gender.

The policy brief summarizes: existing gender discrimination, the institutional and legislative framework for gender equality in education at international, European and national level, pedagogical methods that are critical of stereotypes, and proposals for a gender-sensitive education policy by developing appropriate pedagogical practices and content and strengthening the role of teachers.
