Project description
The Beyond Access project has produced a range of resources to share and disseminate learning from the project, and to help practitioners and policy makers understand what they can do to promote gender equality in education: This project was set up in 2003 by the Institute of Education, Oxfam GB, and the Department for International Development (DFID) of the UK government. It seeks to contribute to promoting gender equality and empowering women (MDG 3) - by generating and critically examining knowledge and practice regarding gender equality and education. To do this, it has brought together a wide network of practitioners, policy makers, and academics to explore critical issues that affect the achievement of gender equality in education, and the way in which these issues relate to gender inequalities in society more broadly. Several capacity building events were organised held in London, Nairobi, Oxford, Norwich and Dhaka. The project produced a range of materials: the Equals newsletter on Gender, Education and Development, featuring articles written by researchers, practitioners and policy makers, conference reports, book reviews and letters; resources for practioners include Working with the media on gender and education; and several research publications.
