What Men and Women Want: A practical guide to gender and participation

What Men and Women Want: A practical guide to gender and participation

Ratings: (0)|Views: 12 |Likes:
Published by Oxfam
Based on an actual gendered participatory appraisal in Wales, this guide offers a thorough explanation of why looking at the differences in men's and women's life experiences is an essential part of any participatory work. What Men and Women Want guides the user through the stages of a process which is 'gendered' throughout - in other words, which takes account of the different perspectives of women and men. It provides a range of accessible tools, explains how to analyse and collate qualitative information with a gender perspective, and shows how to move from action to bring about real and lasting changes in the lives of men and women.
