Making the transition from evaluations to knowledge on gender-transformation

In-spite of several decades of development, the progress has been limited in reducing gender based violence, gender gap in economy, and gender gap in political participation globally. Yet a lot of development programmes and projects focus on these issues, and several evaluations have been carried on 'gender integrated' and 'gender specific projects". A key question is "Are evaluations creating to knowledge building on what works and what does not work with regard to reducing gender based…See More

Gender, Evaluation, Ratings and Raters

Sometimes, while evaluation progress towards gender equality and women's empowerment (GEWE), I am asked to give a rating on a scale of 1 to 5 or 1 to 6 on criteria used by the commissioning organisation.  Normally, sub-criterias are listed for women's access to and ownership of resources, reduction in violence against women, increase in decision making of women etc. Sounds simple?

Positioning men in gender-transformative evaluations

Posted on February 22, 2018 at 14:00 5 Comments

Of late there has been considerable discussions about gender transformative evaluations, as distinct from gender ameliorative, gender instrumental or gender-blind ones.  The gender transformative evaluations seek to assess changes in gendered (and other) power relations and norms & resources in different institutions and contribution of policies, programmes, or projects to these changes, apart from adopting a transformative evaluation methodology.  The gender ameliorative ones assess…

Dear Ranjani Thanks for your reply and for the information. That page does not disaggregate gender within ST and SC unfortunately. If you know any other way of finding out what the gender divisions are within ST and SC workers within NREGA it would be great to know. Or if not data then any studies that unpack these issues, even if just from one state. Many thanks for your help. Beth

Hi Ranjani

I am trying to find data/analysis of MNREGA that shows numbers of women within ST and SC workers employed in MNREGA (national figures). Would you know where I can find these?

Many thanks
Beth
