In the context of education gender equity means that males and females should get equal opportunities in terms of education, economic, social, cultural developments, etc. In a male dominated society gender equity can provide good future to girls, due to which girls get equal benefits in all the aspects of life as much as boys. Education should focus on providing equal participation of women and men in learning process, decision making process and job opportunities.
