Women’s Education: Pacific Overview 1994

Peggy Fairbairn-Dunlop

Ensuring that the education of women and girls is on national agenda is a high priority issue in all Pacific countries, whether we are arguing from the viewpoint of human resource development or equity for women. The difference today is that this push is now supported by data – it is no longer based on unverified assumptions about how many women are getting/not getting into schools and how these women are progressing through the system. Wome are appreciating the importance of data in this increasinly data-proof society: they are asking for existing information to be disaggregated by gender and questioning the validity of the assumptions on which much of this data is based, and collecting new data based on new questions as well. Data baselines about women have been established in all regional countries, action plans featuring achievable targets have been identified from this information and appropriate monitoring and evaluation processes set in motion.
