A SIMPLE GENDER ANALYSIS TOOL

The Gender Advisor | A Simple Gender Analysis Tool

I’m often asked, “What is a good tool to use to do a quick Gender Analysis?”

Here’s a simple gender analysis tool you can take with you in your back pocket anywhere.

If you don’t have time to prepare a detailed gender analysis or can’t work with a gender expert at the beginning of a new project or program, ask yourself the following questions:

1. How are the men, women, boys and girls differently affected by this situation because of their different roles, needs, priorities and status?

AND

2. How is what I am doing, planning, funding, or implementing affecting the different roles, needs, priorities and status of these men, women, boys and girls?

If you can answer what the needs, roles, priorities and status of the men, women, boys and girls are in your area or project context, you’ll soon see where the constraints and opportunities are for creating and implementing gender-sensitive policies and programs.
