This global study examined how students perceive gender and student voice at Round Square (RS) secondary schools. A sequential mixed-method research design involved an online student survey (n=6,244) from 33 countries and student-led interviews (n=114) from 12 countries. The online survey found that girls perceived slightly higher self-confidence in student voice, perceived slightly higher leadership self-efficacy, and held a slightly higher number of formal leadership positions in their schools than boys. Interviews revealed how young female global leaders were inspirational figures in students’ self-perception of student voice and participation in leadership roles at school. Although the students were aware of gender discrimination in society, they perceived that their RS schools were gender-inclusive in terms of student voice and leadership opportunities.
