Gender mainstreaming in education and higher education
The aim of the project was to support the integration of gender equality in the Estonian education system in order to contribute to the reduction of gender inequality in Estonian society. For two years, the project team worked to break the cycle of gender stereotyping by training people, increasing their knowledge and skills, and changing attitudes. To this end, two subject courses on gender equality for universities and an in-service training course for teachers of Estonian general education schools were developed and tested. In order for the courses to meet the needs of Estonian society, teachers and students, a survey was conducted to find out students’ experiences, knowledge and attitudes in the field of gender equality, and an interview was conducted with education and social science students, teachers and gender equality and education experts. In addition, the necessary basic knowledge was gained from an analysis of the Nordic experience and scientific literature.
