There is a need to tackle obstacles to the effective participation of women and girls in education and training as a result of their gender-determined roles (housework, caring for family members, and early marriage and child-bearing). Not only should vocational education, guidance and training be open to men and women equally, from primary education onwards, but boys and girls ought to be brought up to understand the pressures of gender-specific prejudices and to aspire to occupations and careers which are not gender stereotyped. This kind of education is no less important for boys than for girls.
