Beyond disaggregated indicators: Applying gender-sensitive monitoring and evaluation to enhance learning | Webinar | Olimpia Bineschi | Scoop.it
WEBINAR
Date: July 29, 2014 - 9:00am - 10:00am
Event Delivery: Online
Event Host(s): Making Cents International
Beyond Disaggregated Indicators: Applying Gender-Sensitive Monitoring and Evaluation to Enhance LearningThe importance of Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) to enhance learning has now been well established. At the same time, practitioners are increasingly aware of the need to take into account gender issues to improve program effectiveness. But what does adopting a gender-lens mean for M&E and how is gender-sensitive M&E different? Clearly, disaggregating key indicators by male and female is not enough.This webinar will provide practical examples of how gender-sensitive M&E can be done and what difference it makes for youth development programs. Participants will learn how to be more gender-sensitive during the development of their M&E plan, data collection, and analysis. Join Kevin Hempel of the World Bank, Karen Austrian of Population Council, and Jeff Edmeades of ICRW for this “Apply It!” webinar.Making Cents International’s Apply It! Webinar Series is designed to provide concrete tools, resources, innovations, and knowledge applicable to help you create higher impact, more sustainable, and more scalable programs.

Femmes collectionneuses d'art et mécènes, de 1880 à nos jours - Julie Verlaine | Olimpia Bineschi | Scoop.it
“ Y a-t-il une manière féminine de collectionner ? Une collection d’art peut-elle avoir un genre ? Cet ouvrage présente la première synthèse historique consacrée aux femmes collectionneuses d'art et mécènes en Occident depuis la fin du XIXe siècle jusqu’à nos jours. Alternant avec ces mises au point, de multiples portraits singuliers retracent l'itinéraire biographique et esthétique des collectionneuses les plus remarquables : Nélie Jacquemart, Hélène Kröller-Müller, Helena Rubinstein, Marie-laure de Noailles, Peggy Guggenheim ou encore , plus près de nous, Ingvild Goetz ou Dominique de Ménil, en sont quelques exemples. Cette galerie de portraits montre l’extrême diversité des personnalités et des motivations.” Femmes collectionneuses d'art et mécènes, de 1880 à nos jours Julie Verlaine Editions Hazan, 2014

Electoral Lists ahead of the Elections to the European Parliament from a Gender Perspective

Electoral Lists ahead of the Elections to the European Parliament from a Gender Perspective | Olimpia Bineschi | Scoop.it
Upon request of the FEMM Committee, this study provides a detailed analysis of the existing electoral systems for the European 2014 elections from a gender perspective in the 28 EU Member States. It also presents and scrutinises the electoral lists of the Member States from a gender perspective and presents the synthesis of the main findings from the lists. Some main conclusions are made on the basis of the mapping. They concern the relation between the adoption of legislated gender quotas and the implementation of quota provisions by national parties.

Sexism hurts the world economy

Sexism hurts the world economy | Olimpia Bineschi | Scoop.it

Dr Lendy Spires's curator insight, May 23, 2014 5:55 PM

However, despite recent rapid technological advances, some important ideas have yet to be disseminated in many parts of the world. This is especially true when it comes to the notion of human rights.

During her days as first lady, Hillary Clinton represented the United States at the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women hosted by Beijing. In a stirring speech to international delegates from 189 countries, she declared to thunderous applause, “Women’s rights are human rights!”

“I ended the speech with a call to action to return to our countries and renew our efforts to improve educational, health, legal and political opportunities for women,” Clinton writes in her 2003 book, Living History. To her credit, Clinton, former U.S. secretary of state and the undeclared frontrunner for the presidency in 2016, forced women’s rights onto the international agenda.

Unfortunately, Clinton’s ideas have yet to take root in many places. According to the International Labour Organization, approximately 865 million women around the globe endure sexist discrimination at school and in the workplace.

Similarly, the World Bank contends that sexism remains a significant problem. “Trends suggest that gains in women’s labour force participation worldwide over the last three decades have been small and slow, hovering around 51% globally, but as low as 21% in the Middle East and North Africa,” states a World Bank primer entitled, Gender at Work: A companion report to the World Development Report on Jobs.

The World Bank reports that women commonly face legal barriers in the work world. Of the 143 economies studied, the Bretton Woods institution found that “128 had at least one legal sex differentiation in 2013.” Legal barriers to women included restricted access to identity cards, prohibitions on property ownership or the borrowing of money. And incredibly, in no less than 15 countries, women must get their husbands’ permission to enter the labour force.

 

Inclusive growth

Thanks to the work of the Bretton Woods institutions — the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) — the international system has benefited from “unprecedented economic and financial stability over the past seven decades,” Christine Lagarde stated last month in London, England, where she delivered the Richard Dimbleby Lecture. Lagarde is the managing director of the IMF, the first woman to hold that exalted job.

However, she believes that policymakers and economists need to change their way of thinking about economics. The IMF boss contends that they should “make sure that inclusion is given as much weight as growth in the design of policies.” In short, the world economy needs “inclusive growth.”

“If we talk about inclusion in economic life, we must surely talk about gender,” Lagarde declared. “As we know too well, girls and women are still not allowed to fulfil their potential — not just in the developing world, but in rich countries, too.”

When world leaders came together at the UN in 1999 to establish the Millennium Development Goals, a clear set of international development benchmarks to be achieved by 2015, they understood that development and gender equality are inextricably linked. That’s why they made the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women one of the top MDGs.

According to Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada’s website, the promotion of gender equality and women’s empowerment is “essential to the achievement of all the other Millennium Development Goals.” Consequently, the promotion of gender equality is integral to Canada’s international development programs....

Dr Lendy Spires's curator insight, May 23, 2014 7:42 PM

The ordination of women bishops has moved a step closer as all the Church of England’s 44 dioceses voted to allow the change.

It leaves only one hurdle left to change centuries of church practice – a final vote at the General Synod in July.

The body previously approved welcoming women bishops by a huge 378 to eight majority last year, starting the process.

It would allow women to become bishops and archbishops and create a “declaration” by the Church of England setting out guidance for parishes which reject female ministry on traditionalist, ideological grounds.

James Langstaff, the Bishop of Rochester and chairman of the committee on women bishops, said the dioceses expressed their approval "very clearly".

He added: "I pray that the Synod will continue to approach this decision in a prayerful and generous way as we move towards voting on the proposal that women may be bishops in the Church of England.”

In 2011 both London and Chichester diocesan synods voted against the legislation.

The latest seal of approval will be welcome to campaigners, who were devastated in 2012 when legislation for women bishops was rejected at the final hurdle by just six votes in the House of Laity.

That decision was described by the Women and the Church campaign group as “a devastating blow for the Church of England and the people of this country”.

While those proposals included a strict and complex “code of practice” for dissenting parishes, the new package lays out plans for an ombudsman, or independent reviewer, that would rule on disputes at a local level.

Anglican churches in Australia, New Zealand and the United States already have women serving as bishops.
