Gender on the Higher Education Learning Agenda Internationally: Co-Constructing Foundations for Equitable Futures


This research sets out to address gender inequality in international contexts by interrogating and increasing gender inclusion and sensitivity in the focus and approach of higher education teaching in universities across five countries. Mainstreaming gender in higher education is a strategic means to driving wider social change through affecting thinking, beliefs and behaviour of decision-makers of tomorrow. This makes the research key to promoting diverse positive social outcomes including across poverty, health, infant mortality, gender violence and early marriage. The research takes a cross-national case study approach, including universities in India, Kazakhstan, Morocco, Nigeria and the UK. An established interdisciplinary team of feminist academics from each university will collaboratively generate new insights from staff and student surveys and interviews across disciplines, leading to generation of strategic outputs tailored to diverse international audiences including an openly available toolkit resource for wider impact.

“It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.”
