Gender Mainstreaming: Strategy for promoting gender equality

The ITU Group on Gender Issues (GGI) has adopted Gender Mainstreaming as it's primary goal in order to reach 'gender equality' in the ITU.

GENDER MAINSTREAMING STRATEGY

Mainstreaming a gender perspective in all types of activities (referred to as 'gender mainstreaming') is a globally accepted strategy for promoting gender equality.

Mainstreaming is not an end in itself but a means to the goal of gender equality.

Mainstreaming involves ensuring that gender perspectives and attention to the goal of gender equality are central to all activities - policy development, research, advocacy/dialogue, legislation, resource allocation, and planning, implementation and monitoring of programmes and projects.

Development of an adequate understanding of mainstreaming requires clarity on the related concepts of GENDER and EQUALITY.
