To mark International Women’s Day 2023, UNESCO and the Global Education Monitoring Report Team launched a factsheet on the latest facts on gender equality and education and to highlight how gender-transformative education can boost innovation and technology.

As the factsheet shows, despite progress, gender disparities persist in access, skills and the quality of education. Globally, access for the poorest girls remains an acute problem. Gender gaps also persist in innovation and technology. Gender disparities emerge in school, negatively impacting girls’ and women’s participation in the development of innovation and technology.
