Summary/Abstract: The latest available data on education of women was published by the Agency for Statistics BiH, like in previous years, and it has demonstrated the following: 36,939 students completed their primary education in 2014/2015, 18,246 of who were girls; 43,991 students completed their secondary education in 2014/2015, 21,402 of who were girls. 71,786 girls are attending secondary education in 2014/2015, out of the 143,881 students on the territory of the entire BiH. Therefore it is fair to say that girls and boys participate in primary and secondary education equally.
