Seminar

Seminar on Gender and Literacy in Sabah

Eliminating the Gap

This seminar aimed to tackle Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4 which seeks to provide quality education, SDG 5 that promotes gender equality, and SDG 10 which purports to reduce inequalities. It is a widely known fact that disparity in gender is largely due to lack of access to education which ultimately affects levels of literacy. Even though in Malaysia, youth literacy as well as adult literacy has significantly improved over the years, there are still concerns on literacy in legal, social and cultural issues.
