The start of the EFA movement ushered in a new era in education linked to research on issues such as global governance. This global governance affects the way in which educational systems are influenced and involves how we view various issues within education. A key issue in the EFA movement, accepted as part of the global consensus of what works, is the emphasis on gender within education. In the article I attempt to understand issues related to gender and education and provide a critical analysis of how the global consensus to advance gender equality and equity in education are understood.
