This book contains 40 lessons which show how English language teachers have included a range of gender topics in their pedagogical practise. Examples of such topics include gender and the workplace, gender and education, gender stereotypes and gender (in)equality. Collectively, they showcase how teachers working in different environments have taken the time to embed a social agenda in their pedagogical practice.

The book is an outcome of the international ‘Gender-ing ELT’ research project, which was conducted in ten different countries – Bangladesh, Botswana, Brazil, China, Colombia, Indonesia, Morocco, Philippines, Ukraine and Vietnam. The book, however, is not limited to lessons from these countries; it includes contributions from practitioners based in countries beyond those directly involved in the project. While the lessons are context sensitive (i.e. they have been designed by teachers in response to a specific need, in relation to a given situation and/or for a unique group of students), they can be easily adapted to other contexts across the globe.
