Globally, some 39 million girls of lower secondary age are currently not enrolled in either primary or secondary education, while two-thirds of the world’s 796 million illiterate adults are women. Only about one-third of countries have achieved gender parity at secondary level. The evidence shows that something needs to change. 

IIEP has conducted policy research on gender equality in learning achievement and educational leadership. IIEP will build on this work by supporting the interpretation and use of gender-relevant data and evidence, including learning achievement, to guide policy and programme design at the country level.
