What does quality gender-equitable education look like? How can NGOs, practitioners, policymakers, and researchers work together to achieve it? This book tackles these issues, drawing on the work of the Beyond Access, Gender, Education and Development project-a partnership between Oxfam GB, the Institute of Education (University of London), and the UK Department for International Development. The contributors discuss some of the key challenges in achieving gender equality in education, provide examples of initiatives in a range of contexts, and make recommendations for action. This book is invaluable for anyone involved in developing policy and good practice for quality education for all.
