New resource on gender & impact evaluation

Hello, all -

ODI has just published a new paper of mine, titled Addressing Gender in Impact Evaluation: What Should Be Considered?

In it, I argue against the increasing seepage of gender = women in international development, which is unhelpful and, at times, can unintentionally reinforce the idea of a fixed sex binary.

Let's keep seeing gender as a process,that functions around norms of masculinity & femininity!

All feedback very welcome.

hi! completely agree with Gillian's view point as above. Gender should not be understood and left to be messaged to all as being equal to women or girls. It is a concept that needs to be studied to ensure equitable equality in the society. this is used to question the prevalence of patriarchal norms and the concept of masculinity in the society. Further how should we deal with THIRD GENDER. we need to consider that segment as well in all our work towards equality, peace and justice.

Hi Gillian, I loved your paper, written in a simple language. I could relate it to my personal life! Once I am able to do that I know I can use it in my work. I also liked that  the examples were not limited to women:-) Having worked with older people, MSM, transgenders etc I have slowly realised that gender and equity is about power relations and power dynamics and that is why the newly launched initiative is called Evalgender+

In terms of gender you have used the word process. Please could you elaborate. Thanks Gillian!
