Comprehensive Sexuality Education: Promoting gender equality, empowering young people and ending gender based violence
Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) increases girls’ awareness of their bodies, rights and capabilities, and is also crucial for boys, improving understanding of sexual health, relationships and gender equality. By delivering CSE that begins early, includes both girls and boys and emphasises skills building, the education sector can play a critical role in addressing inequality. In this session, UNESCO and partners will introduce revised international technical guidance on CSE and highlight how it addresses child marriage.
