What does a world without gender inequality look like? Realising this vision requires inspiring and mobilising social change. But what would indicate we are on the right track - and how will we know when we get there? Gender-sensitive indicators and other measurements of change are critical - for building the case for taking gender (in)equality seriously, for enabling better planning and actions, and for holding institutions accountable for their commitments on gender.
In March 2007 BRIDGE and The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Bureau for Development Policy (BDP) Gender Team undertook an Expert Panel Discussion on Gender Sensitive Indicators and Measurements of Change at the 51st Session of the Commission on the Status of Women. This document provides an overview of the panel presentations and discussion points.
