This document synthesizes the proposals of the Florecer Network to advance in gender equality, convinced that the commitment to a more just and more human world necessarily involves the assumption of equality between men and women. The principle that the rights of women and girls are an integral, inalienable and indivisible part of universal human rights has been reaffirmed from the various international forums. Greater equity between men and women is also beneficial for the development of the country. A country with educated girls and women has a lower birth rate, improves their health and productivity conditions. This document synthesizes the main proposals of the Gender and Citizenship Forum: imperative for a quality education, organized by Red Florecer in May 2013 year. We want to put them in the hands of decision-makers and citizens in general to help concretize the mandates of equality between men and women in education. It is time not to give up dreams because they have become possible.
