Show Notes

How can teachers promote gender equality? How easy is it to start challenging stereotypes in the classroom? Can gender responsive pedagogies help break down the barriers holding girls back?

In this episode, two educators, from Zambia and Paraguay, share their stories of challenging stereotypes, and encouraging and empowering girls in the classroom.

Nina also talks to Christina Kwauk, a social scientist and policy analyst specialised in girls’ education. Christina addresses the connection between gender equality in the classroom and societal change and how gender responsive and gender transformative pedagogical approaches can increase resilience.
