This is a recording of the M&E Thursday Talk from October 26th as Julie Arostegui LeMaster of Freedom House, and Paulina Rudnicka of ABA ROLI’s Gender Practice Group hosted the M&E Thursday Talk series to lead a discussion on “Gender Assessment and Analysis in Human Rights Programming.”
What is gender assessment? What is gender analysis? How and why do we do them?
Inclusion is key to preventing and addressing human rights abuses. Without the participation of women and other marginalized groups and the consideration of gender perspectives we will not be addressing the issues effectively and comprehensively. Gender assessment and analysis help us reach these goals by ensuring inclusive programming.
In this webinar, members of the PROGRESS consortium discussed their approach to gender, with a spotlight on the American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative’s new Status of Women Assessment Tool. Speakers included Julie Arostegui LeMaster, Senior Gender and Inclusion Advisor for PROGRESS at Freedom House, and Paulina Rudnicka, Advisor and co-chair of ABA ROLI’s Gender Practice Group.
Freedom House, the American Bar Association, Internews, Pact, and Search for Common Ground formed the “Protecting Global Rights through Sustainable Solutions” Consortium (PROGRESS) to implement the Human Rights Support Mechanism (HRSM). HRSM is a USAID funded, five-year leader with associates (LWA) cooperative agreement aimed at implementing USAID’s Democracy, Human Rights and Governance (DRG) Strategy, specifically objective #3: Protect and promote universally recognized human rights. This event was made possible with the generous support of the American People through USAID.
