Agenda 2030 places gender equality and inclusive and equitable quality education at the heart of its concerns. It addresses violence against girls and boys as a cross-cutting concern, and includes concrete commitments under a number of Goals and Targets.
Educational institutions are places where learners, regardless of their age, gender, ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation, are expected to be safe. They are also spaces with a huge potential to create social change.
This call for action materials were prepared as a part of "16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence" campaign’s 2015 edition, coordinated by the Centre for Women’s Global Leadership at Rutgers University.
