Published by Oxfam GB's UK Poverty Programme Gender analysis has been used in international development for many years. It is now widely recognised that a better understanding of the particular needs of women and men makes a significant difference in the fight against poverty and disadvantage. This hands-on guide is designed to help those working in local government or the voluntary sector to plan and deliver services which will have a real impact on the everyday - different - lives of women and men.See Both Sides provides invaluable strategy, training exercises, and impact assessment tools, and shares examples from the experience of an organisation providing services to lone parents. They successfully used gender analysis to widen their target group, revitalise existing services and develop new ones. The process enabled them to understand better who lone parents are, recognise that welfare structures do not always reach them in their diversity, and change their work to reflect the reality of the ways in which parents share care. There is much common ground between gender and other equality areas: See Both Sides can also be used to support work on race, disability, and other equalities.
