What is gender

What is gender?

Gender is our ‘created’ sexual identity as opposed to our biological sexual identity.

This is a structure which limits men’s and women’s power to make free choices.

All of us – women and men alike – help create and maintain this system throughout our lives, by our everyday actions.


Is this a sex or gender statement

Is this a sex or gender statement?

1. Women give birth to babies, men don’t.

2. Little girls are gentle, boys are tough.

3. Women can breastfeed babies, men can bottle-feed babies.

4. Most building-site workers in Britain are men.

5. Men’s voices break at puberty, women’s do not.

6. According to UN statistics, women do 67% of the world’s work, yet their earnings for it amount to only 10% of the world’s income.


The two logics of gender

The two logics of “gender”

1. Separation

A clear example of separation is the gender-segregated labour market. Almost all of those working in care are women and almost all of those working in technical jobs are men.

2. Hierarchy

In the labour market, men generally earn more than women in just about every occupational category, and women are increasingly scarce the higher up you go in an organisation’s hierarchy.


Gender lenses

Gender lenses

‘Gender Lenses’ is a name given to the concept of wearing a pair of spectacles and looking at the community:-

  • Out of one lens you see the participation, needs and realities of women, and out of the other lens you see the participation, needs and realities of men.

  • Your vision is the combination of what both eyes see together.

  • We need equal, respectful partnerships between men and women.


Gender equality

Gender equality

Women and men must have the same power to shape society and their own lives.

This means:-

1. Equal division of power and social influence.

2. Economic equality between women and men.

3. Equal distribution of unpaid care and household work. Women and men shall have the same opportunities to give and receive care on equal terms.

4. Men’s violence against women must stop.


Types of violence

Types of violence

  • Making disparaging remarks to women

  • Telling sexist jokes

  • Display of “pin-up” girls in workplace

  • Excluding women from conversation

  • Unwanted attention or touching

  • More aggressive pressure - bullying

  • Physical violence

  • Rape


Gender equal situation

Gender Equal Situation

This means resources and services are equally accessible, of equally high quality and equally well adapted to all citizens, regardless of gender.

Services and resources are adapted to the needs of both genders by basing them on women’s and men’s living patterns.


Questions to ask

Questions to ask

Is there anything that segregates the genders?

Is there anything that attaches value to one gender or the other?

Is any particular gender the norm?

What is the gender representation?

What is the allocation of resources to the genders?


Four approaches to strategy

INACTIVE

Do nothing

------------------------------------

PREACTIVE

Produce an action plan in expectation of an external or internal event happening.

If the expected event does not happen the plan will not work.

REACTIVE

Produce an action plan as a result of an event which has forced the organisation to react.

-------------------------------------

PROACTIVE

Produce an action plan based on organisations own agenda for future, based on own needs and priorities.

Four approaches to strategy


6 steps to gender mainstreaming

6 steps to gender mainstreaming

Step 1 - Developing an understanding of gender equality.

Step 2 - Focus is on determining the conditions for gender mainstreaming.

Step 3 - Planning and organising gender development work.

Step 4 - Auditing, surveying, analysis and the formulation of objectives from a gender equality perspective.

Step 5 - Implementing the measures planned.

Step 6 - Evaluating the outcome of an operation or activity from a gender perspective.


Gender training

The Strategy Cycle

1.Understanding gender equality

7.Revision


Swot analysis

SWOT analysis

  • STRENGTHS What do we do well in terms of gender equality?

  • WEAKNESSES What do we do not so well?

  • OPPORTUNITIES How can we be more gender equal?

  • THREATS What are the risks of gender inequality?


Risks of gender inequality

Risks of gender inequality

This might happen:-

1. If we proceed on the basis of ‘gender neutrality’ which can lead to gender blindness.

2. From a norm that only reflects one of the genders. The process may then be adapted to the needs of that gender.

3. Have different expectations of women and men. Our conclusions may then be gender stereotyped and may cause us to place different

demands on women and men or treat them differently.


Before and after

Before and after

From A to B

Planning mainstreaming

Action plan

  • OBJECTIVES

  • PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR ACTION

  • START DATE

Gender training

Specific: goal & methods must be clearly defined

Measurable: define your objectives numerically

Achievable: humanly possible, with required resources

Relevant: objective must add value to plan

Time: framed set deadlines


Force field analysis

Force Field Analysis

Any change is painful and will be resisted by some who feel threatened. Let us consider what will be the positive forces in our favour and the negative forces against us.For change Against change
