How do gender norms – society’s expectations about how men and women and boys and girls should look and behave – affect educational outcomes for girls? What does this mean for program design and evaluation?
And what is gender, anyway?
Those are the questions discussed in WomenStrong International’s September webinar with our newest Learning Lab members from Afghanistan, Guatemala, Malawi, Peru, Uganda, and Zimbabwe. These grantees are spending a year working to pilot, replicate, disseminate, and amplify solutions as they implement Girls’ Education and Empowerment programs in their communities.
The Gender 101 webinar was presented by Dr. Chisina Kapungu, WomenStrong’s incoming Director of Learning and Organizational Strengthening and an expert on gender, youth, and development.
