Gender Responsive Public Services Advocacy
This one week course is crafted for government and NGO professionals and working toward advancing women's rights and gender equality related to access to public services. The course is premised on the fundamental human rights principle that public services should be accessed to all, and be designed to meet the needs and priorities of people based on their gender, age, disability, ethnicity, and social context.
You will be introduced to contemporary arguments and findings such as when public services are not gender-responsive, the burden of women’s unpaid care is increased, inequality is exacerbated and poor and excluded women face a major barrier to enjoying their rights. You will examine policy options for improving public services vital to progress on the fulfillment of girls’ and women’s rights, and the potential that gender-responsive public services have for countering social and economic inequalities and creating more equal societies. Through practical tools and exercises, you will gain the ability to explain the different dimensions essential for assessing and advocating for the provision of gender-responsive public services.
