UIL Publishes Research Study on Women’s Literacy and Empowerment

The UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) has published a research study titled “Literacy and Women’s Empowerment: Stories Of Success And Inspiration” in contribution to the International Literacy Day on 8 September 2013.

The study describes promising approaches to developing literacy and learning for women, who are the majority of the world’s non-literate adults. Key success factors are identified to outline concrete recommendations on how to achieve literacy and empowerment of women, thus making it a valuable resource for policy makers, programme providers and facilitators in the field of lifelong learning.

For more information on best practices on women’s literacy and empowerment, UIL invites you to visit the UNESCO Effective Literacy and Numeracy Database which features a large selection of inspiring case studies from around the globe.
