Gender equality

Gender equality is a fundamental condition for democracy, peace, sustainable development and the fight against poverty. All projects and cooperations should therefore promote gender equality. Read on to find out how you can do just that in your organisation!

Why integrate a gender perspective?

The Palme Center is a feminist organisation. All projects run with funds from the Palme Center must promote gender equality and non-discrimination.

Occasionally, this is done directly, i.e. through activities intended to contribute directly to increased equality and reduced discrimination. However, those projects and operations that do not focus directly on gender equality and non-discrimination should, as far as possible, also be designed in such a way as to promote gender equality and combat discrimination. All projects/operations must be gender mainstreamed.

In practice, this means that the operation must be founded on a thoroughly tried and tested gender equality and power analysis that is included in the planning, implementation and follow-up of the operation.

When performing an analysis of this kind, it is useful to think of how different power orders and discrimination bases affect and occasionally amplify one another. An individual power order cannot be understood independently of others. This is usually referred to as intersectionality. 

Practical tools to work with this perspective

Under Gender Equality among our method materials you can find several tools to work with gender equality in your organisation and operations.

For example, you’ll find information on how to conduct a gender analysis, how you can work with gender mainstreaming and how to do a gender budget. There are also capacity building materials if you want to hold your own trainings on this topic.
