Adressing gender issues in education is an important step towards broader social change. This handbook is a practical, user-friendly guide, focusing on the process of integrating gender issues into policies and programmes in the education sector. Written for Sida advisers, it is a useful tool for other advisers and consultants involved in developing and reviewing programmes and policies from a gender perspective both in the education sector and beyond. The first half outlines broad issues related to gender and education and the second half contains tables with lists of questions to consider for mainstreaming gender in the programme cycle.
