TERCE identifies significant subject-based gender inequalities in learning achievements. Male students have a considerable advantage in mathematics and female students have a similar advantage in reading and writing. It is therefore essential to review the curriculum, textbooks and teaching materials, so that men and women are equally portrayed in activities of different natures. Thus, it is imperative for images and messages to include both males and females performing equally in scientific activities, caring for small children, and doing household chores, among other things.
