Strengthening gender and inclusivity in the national system of science, technology, and innovation (STI) : Malawi country profile
Gender inequality in Malawi is associated with deep-rooted inequitable laws, norms, and practices, hampering women and girls' access to opportunities, resources, and power. Unequal gender roles and unequal power relations between men and women persist across all social institutions, giving rise to multiple forms of discrimination against women, illustrated in the country's poor performance on various gender-disaggregated socio-economic development indices (Table 1). Strengthening Gender and Inclusivity in STI highlights the contextual factors driving gender and inclusivity disparities in science, technology and innovation (STI) in Malawi and options and strategies for addressing disparity gaps in some of UNESCO’s STEM and Gender Advancement (SAGA) policy impact areas.
