Gender Mainstreaming and Women's Rights

Usha Sharma (Author)
Synopsis A focus on gender issues means looking at both women and men, whilst recognising that it is women who suffer from gender inequality and discrimination. Nowadays greater emphasis is being put on empowering women so that they can develop and realise their full potential and contribute to the society and nation as well. The importance of gender concerns to successful project and programme implementation, and to promoting social welfare and economic efficiency as well as in addressing social, economic and political inequalities, is widely acknowledged. The book pays attention to the burning issues of gender inequalities in almost all walks of life, and emphasises the importance of planning and implementation process of gender mainstreaming programmes for effective human development. It is hoped that this book will be a valuable reference tool for all those engaged in women studies, and will serve to assist human rights activists, policymakers, and administrators in ensuring the incorporation of an effective gender perspective in the development programmes.
