Teachers:

Teaching is still frequently a female profession with men in charge #DontIgnoreHer Bit.ly/2019gemreportgender

In 28 mostly high-income countries, 70% of lower secondary school teachers are female, but only 53% are head teachers #DontIgnoreHer Bit.ly/2019gemreportgender

Many countries struggle to deploy female teachers where they are most needed, like in displacement settings, and there is little training in gender-sensitive teaching, which reinforces gender stereotypes in the classroom #DontIgnoreHer Bit.ly/2019gemreportgender
