Presidency University is hosting an International Conference on Gender Equality through the Strategy of Gender Mainstreaming in association with United Nations Information Centre for India and Bhutan
Gender mainstreaming is one strategy that is embraced internationally towards realizing gender equality. It involves the integration of a gender perspective into the preparation, design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of policies, regulatory measures and spending programmes with a view to promoting equality between women and men, and combating discrimination. Though gender is used as a catch-all term in many contexts, to describe a range of issues in an apolitical way, it is often understood as being only about women's needs, rather than about the unequal social relationships between women and men that are invested with power. Working for sustainability, therefore, presents opportunities to not only acknowledge global inequalities but to contribute to social and gender transformation.
