Resumen:

"We need to understand and target the particular obstacles that keep female students away from STEM. We need to stimulate interest from the earliest years, to combat stereotypes, to train teachers to encourage girls to pursue STEM careers, to develop curricula that are gender-sensitive, to mentor girls and young women and change mindsets. In 2016, Member States adopted a decision on the role of UNESCO in encouraging girls and women to be leaders in STEM, including arts and design. This report directly responds to this request. It is also a contribution to UNESCO’s Global Partnership for Girls’ and Women’s Education which promotes gender equality to, in and through education. By providing evidence and examples from research and practice, this report is a solid reference for policy-makers, practitioners and other stakeholders to engage more girls in STEM education. Most of all, this report has been written for girls and women around the world. It champions their right to a quality education, and a better life and better future. "
