ERA National Plan on Gender Equality – Education and Training

Equality Rights Alliance Women’s Health 2019

Although Australia was once a leader internationally in gendered education policy, there are no current overarching national policies that focus on gender in education in Australia. Policies have become selective, such as the current focus on STEM, without deeper consideration of longer-term implications. The lack of interest in education policies for women and girls impacts not only on policy per se but also impacts negatively on research, including research funding.
