Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) aims to foster the development of children and young people in the realm of gender equality and has achieved numerous positive achievements in addressing gender-related issues. However, little is known about the effectiveness of CSE interventions on gender bias, particularly regarding implicit gender bias. Considering the adverse impact of gender bias on achieving gender equality in real life. Therefore, the present study aims to explore the potential of CSE intervention to weaken explicit and implicit gender bias among university students. A quasi-experimental intervention design was employed to assess the pretest-posttest measurements of explicit and implicit gender bias using a self-report questionnaire and Implicit Association Tests (IAT) respectively. Following a 5-month CSE intervention consisting of 36 sessions with university students, ANOVA was conducted to compare differences between the intervention group (N=97) and the control group (N=68). The findings revealed that the CSE intervention not only effectively reduced explicit gender bias but also significantly diminished implicit gender bias. Additionally, the CSE intervention effects exhibited differences across dimensions and sex. These results indicate the positive impact of CSE intervention on gender bias and provide valuable insights for future intervention strategies and evaluation approaches.
