dc.description.abstract Strengthening Gender and Inclusivity in Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) highlights factors driving gender and inclusivity disparities in Botswana, along with options and strategies for addressing disparity gaps: social norms and stereotypes; education (primary, secondary and tertiary); the career progression environment; research content and practice; policy; and entrepreneurship and innovation. Gender disparities in Botswana are mainly due to reproductive health, empowerment, culture, and the labour market that hinders women and girls' access to opportunities, resources, and power. The Abolition of the Marital Power Act 2004 provides for equal rights and status of women and men in marriage. The country profile measures challenges and progress using various statistical indicators. en
