Why should women be included and in what ways are they excluded in the realm of public policy?

In this Masterclass, Dr Curth-Bibb will explore the different lenses and assumptions that underpin attempts to achieve gender equity in public policy. Together we will consider how different solutions derive from different ways of imagining the problem.

Ultimately this session will work towards understanding how gender equity can be more systematically integrated into the policy-making, implementation and monitoring and evaluation process by providing space for greater social inclusion – if for no other reason it makes good strategic sense.
