CARE’s approach to women’s empowerment and gender equality recognizes the importance of challenging the roots of gender inequality and intervening to the intra-household level, and deliberately addressing social norms, in part through the engagement of men and community leaders. While CARE has a number of promising tools for engaging communities around gender dialogues, monitoring for changes in intra-household dynamics or in gender norms at the community level during implementation is notoriously difficult. Changes in power relations are dynamic and not straightforward. Skills, assets, and economic engagement are recognized as catalysts for women’s empowerment, but they do not always translate directly into greater bargaining power within the household or the community. Programs may also have unintended outcomes—both positive and negative—or associated repercussions (such as increased violence), for which it is crucial to monitor. On the other hand, awareness-raising may lead to changes in attitudes about gender norms (such as tolerance of violence); but surveys of attitudes do not necessarily capture the extent to which people’s actual behaviors and practices are changing.
Outcome Mapping is a qualitative methodology that puts people at the center. This presentation discusses the OM approach, and how Pathways applied the methodology for a richer understanding of the “mini-indicators” of behavior change toward empowerment.
