G7 Gender Equality Advisory Council Highlights Education in Recommendations 

Recognizing that education is a central element of gender equality and women's economic empowerment, the G7 Gender Equality Advisory Council called on leaders to guarantee, through their legislative frameworks, policies and programs: "12 years of free, quality, and compulsory schooling for all children in safe, supportive, and secure learning environments." The Council recommended core approaches to ensure inclusive, equitable, and quality education and health. See page 25 of the call to action for a full list of recommended approaches.
