Whithin recent decades, investment in women's education and gender equality are important subjects that economists and policymakers are interested in. Eduacational gender inequality impacts negatively on human capital and therefor economic growth. Using simullaneous equation model and seemingly unrelated regressions (SUR) method, this paper investigates the direct and indirect impact of gender equality in education on economic growth. The sample includes developing countries over period 2000-2006. The results indicate that gender equalities in education have a statistically significant positive effect on economic growth. The results suggest that gender equality in education helps to promote economic growth directly in increasing human capital accumulation and indirectly in raising investment, in population growth planning. So, it's required that developing countries provide the promotion of educational gender equality by considering the role of women in economic development.
