Are surrogate cum participatory evaluations gender-socially transformative?

Posted on April 22, 2019 at 17:14 1 Comment

I do evaluations which I often call participatory. I have a consultation with the primary stakeholders on what should be evaluated, involve them in the process of evaluation, and analyse and validate findings with them. While it is participatory, the control rests with me, and I act as a proxy or surrogate for the marginalised women/girls, men/boys and transwomen/transmen.

However, being a "surrogate", do I really capture the voices of marginalised, which may be contradictory given…

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
