Gender Budgeting

Gender-related analysis and gender-oriented evaluation of the distribution of (financial) resources

Angelika Blickhäuser, Henning von Bargen

what is gender budgeting
What is Gender Budgeting?
  • A (national) budget is a reflection of the political decisions made as to how (from whom) the revenue is levied and for what purposes (for whom) the expenditure is specifically used.
  • The decisions are reached on the basis of a normative image of society which determines the economic and socio-political priorities.
  • Budgetary decisions have an impact on how society is structured and consequently directly affect the living circumstances of women, men, girls and boys as well as the gender relationship.
  • This train of thought represents the starting point for Gender Budgeting.
aims of gender budgeting
Aims of Gender Budgeting
  • To analyse the (national) budget from a gender perspective (Gender Budget Analysis)
  • To determine how revenue and expenditure affect women, men, girls and boys – who benefits from budgetary decisions and who does not?
  • To develop starting points for a gender-equal restructuring of the (national) budget and to effect changes in the fiscal policy priorities
  • Not to establish a separate budget item for women
gender budget analyses
Gender Budget Analyses
  • Gender-conscious evaluation of political strategies
  • Gender-specific benefit analysis
  • Gender-differentiated analysis of public spending
  • Gender-specific analysis of tax revenue
  • Gender-differentiated analysis of what impact the time budgets of men and women have on national income
  • Gender-conscious approach to mid-term financial planning
  • Gender-conscious budget statement
gender conscious evaluation of political strategies
Gender-conscious evaluation of political strategies

Key issue:

  • To what extent do political strategies and the corresponding distribution of resources lead to greater or smaller gender disparities?
gender specific benefit analysis
Gender-specific benefit analysis

Key issue:

  • In what manner would which section of the population benefit or not benefit from public spending/cutbacks?
gender specific analysis of public spending
Gender-specific analysis of public spending

Key issue:

  • Who actually receives public funds within a specific policy area and/or within a certain programme? (divided according to gender, class, ethnic origin, age,...)
gender specific analysis of tax revenue
Gender-specific analysis of tax revenue

Key issue:

  • What is the estimated size of the tax burden that the various sections of the population have to pay?(divided according to gender, class, ethnic origin, age,...)
gender differentiated analysis of the impact of time budgets
Gender-differentiated analysis of the impact of time budgets

Key issue:

  • What impact does income and spending policy have on the time taken for non-market reproduction work (household and family work)?
gender conscious application of mid term financial planning
Gender-conscious application of mid-term financial planning
  • Incorporation of the gender category into economic models; through disaggregated variables, for example
  • Opinion polls or interviews, for example, are used to assess the extent to which the needs of certain groups are met by public services
  • Key issue: do the government’s fiscal policy priorities reflect the priorities of various sections of the population?
gender conscious budget statement
Gender-conscious budget statement
  • A report or statement which justifies the policies, programmes and financial decisions which have been formulated and/or reached on the basis of gender budget analyses.
summary
Summary
  • Gender Budgeting is a strategic approach to revealing any gender-specific disorders in budgetary policy.
  • Gender Budgeting develops approaches aimed at providing a gender-equal reformulation of the (national) budget.
  • Gender Budgeting changes political priorities as it implies debating and contesting political structures and processes.
