The SEP warns that in girls and adolescents there is a lack of interest in studying careers related to exact sciences, as they point out that 95% of the female students do not talk about studying careers that include mathematics and science, so workshops will be held to generate in them an interest in studying these subjects and robotics, as well as logical-mathematical thinking.

Both the SEP and Inmujeres agreed on the relevance of promoting different life projects in women that take away from them the cultural role of “caregivers”, so that educational services will be with gender perspectives.

Inmujeres acknowledged that currently the SEP already applies 46 actions to promote and encourage gender equality, which were not previously applied.

To apply these actions, it was stated that the participation of teachers will be vital, so that work will also be done in normal schools so that new teachers already have the foundations of an education with equity.

It was agreed that during one of the next meetings of the School Technical Councils (CTE) of the 2021-2022 School Cycle, Inmujeres will address the issue of prevention of gender violence from the educational field.

The SEP reiterated its disposition so that the prevention of violence is not only against girls and adolescents, but also includes protection for boys and young men, and also includes the environment and respect for animals.
