“…Third, inequalities are also attributed to: the under-representation of women in education leadership positions, the inappropriate school infrastructure, and the misrepresentation of 13 gender in textbooks (Llorent-Bedmar, 2014). Cultural norms and the level of economic development continue to multiply the obstacles facing girls in their educational pursuit, as well as the interaction between a conservative culture and economic structures that have resulted in the country seeing lower levels of women's literacy and enrolment rates compared to other regions with similar income levels (see Boutieri, 2016).…”
