Since Côte d’Ivoire emerged from a period of prolonged conflict in 2011, the education system has been expanding rapidly. However, education in the country continues to face many challenges.
Despite the increase in the adult literacy rate in recent years, it remains low at 43.91% and shows a big gap between sexes.
Inequality is also present in Côte d’Ivoire’s economy and the workplace. Women’s employment positions seem to be limited and their lack of education compared to men reduces their employment opportunities.
