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.


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.
