Equality between women and men

The equality of women and men in all areas, political, economic, social … is both a defining human rights objective and a means to achieve real sustainable development.

Equality and gender approach

The “gender” approach studies the roles, statuses and stereotypes attributed to each sex. These social relations between women and men vary according to societies and times, but they remain largely based on inequalities to the detriment of women in all fields and particularly in terms of political and economic power. “Gender” or “social sex” is both a sociological concept, a human rights objective and a methodology for more effective actions, as well as promoting a sustainable development mode.

Economic issues are particularly important in terms of equality between women and men. Adéquations participates in a program “Gender and economic development, women actors of development” in West Africa. It also offers online resources to promote “gender responsive budgeting”.
