How do we achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls?
Let’s take action to make a positive change today for a better future, improving equality for women throughout the world.
In these lessons the focus is on the sustainable development goal 5. We offer reliable and accurate facts relating to gender inequality that will build knowledge and help pupils reflect on how they may be contributing to the problem and how they could be part of the solution.
These lessons look at inspirational female role models like the Suffragettes, MP Jo Cox and Malala.
Malala, who is now 21, has campaigned to show the connection between educating girls and gender equality. On her 16th birthday she stood up in the UN headquarters and spoke on this issue, her words were broadcasted to the world. Malala became a public figure when she was shot by the Taliban while travelling to school in Pakistan - targeted because of her commitment to campaigning for the right of all girls to an education.
