Short description

Gender Mainstreaming - an often used term, scarcely understood and rarely really wanted. The manifold reactions and violent emotions regarding this topic lead to this assumption.

 

  • Where are the roots of the term Gender Mainstreaming?
  • Which are the theoretical and judicial bases?
  • How can Gender Mainstreaming be applied in the business world?

 

This publication provides the necessary basic knowledge for it.

 

After a survey over feminist theories, a definiton of the central terms of equal opportunities policy is given in scientific and judicial terms.

 

On this basis, the following actual topics are focused on: choice of occupation, compatibility of work and family, income distribution, equal treatment and equal opportunities. The third and main chapter is dedicated to the precise realisation of projects. A survey of possible fund givers in the EU leads over to the description of the single phases of a project, from the analysis to the assurance of sustainibility. Finally, current Gender Mainstreaming projects in Tyrol are presented.

 

The enclosed CD-ROM contains a rich collection of up-to-date publications ,checklists, guidelines, links and contact adresses for the realisation of Gender Mainstereaming. It also features a new presentation mode of the scientific software GABEK-WinRelan for the readers to explore the complete data of the WoMen field study, referred to in the book.

 

This book was developed within the EQUAL project WoMen.
