As part of developing our Gender Matters Roadmap, in December 2016 Engender held a roundtable to discuss gendered education strategies for Scotland. The roundtable brought together a small group of expert participants and practitioners to think creatively about some of the gender equality challenges in the Scottish school system, and to collaboratively develop specific policy measures.
Key themes that emerged from the discussion included:
• Addressing a pervasive culture of misogyny and harassment in schools and countering gender stereotyping
• Addressing gender equality and violence against women and girls in teacher training
• The need to look at school strategy, leadership, aims and management through a gendered lens and the importance of taking a ‘whole school’ approach
• The need for better data gathering on incidents of sexism and misogyny in schools, and better reporting frameworks on progressing gender equality
