Let’s make Comprehensive Sexuality Education a priority for gender equality.
CSE is a missing piece in achieving gender equality for all.
It equips young people with the foundational skills they need to decide about their health and well-being. CSE builds knowledge, attitudes and values for healthy, respectful and gender equal relationships. And it lets young people understand and protect themselves from any harm and harm to others, whilst also learning about their rights and how to be respectful of the rights and choices of others.
All governments have committed to making sure that the Global Goals for Gender Equality, Education and Health are achieved by 2030. The evidence is clear. CSE is an essential part of the solution to achieving these goals. But not all young people have access to it, and some governments are not prioritizing it.
CSE helps young people to understand what gender equality is and what it looks like in their everyday lives.
