Study on Gender Equality in Management Positions in the Education Sector in Senegal
Full report in French, with English executive summary. This study was undertaken for the Renforcement de la Lecture Initiale pour Tous (RELIT) program in Senegal, an activity made possible by the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). It is an analysis of gender equality and equity in positions of responsibility and decision-making within the Senegalese Ministry of Education (MEN). Understanding this issue is important for combating gender stereotypes and biases, while drawing up a portrait of gender-related inequalities in access to positions of responsibility and decision-making bodies in the education sub-sectors. The study also points out the difficulties and constraints faced by women in positions of responsibility and identifies the obstacles that hinder their educational and professional careers. In addition, it looks at the promotion plan for women teachers to identify inequalities between men and women in access to positions of responsibility.
