Our Journey through the promotion of gender equality and women’s empowerment

  1. Our Journey through the promotion of gender equality and women’s empowerment Silvia Sperandini (LR Nepal, 6-13 December 2014)
  2. Key Principles emerged: ▪ Empowerment: capacity to make choices, and transform them into actions and outcomes ▪ Being People Focussed: Strategies focussed on people, their vision, goals, pathways, etc. ▪ Self-generated solutions: Willingess to change is generated by women who proposed their own solutions ▪ Equal opportunities: Women, men, youth, Indigenous Peoples and other vulnarable groups should have equal: Voice and decision-making Access to opportunities, productive assets, services, benefits
  3. ▪ Overburdened by their daily workload ▪ Face specific challenges in accessing inputs, land and natural resources, services, education/trainings, technologies ▪ Cannot access formal financial services due to the lack of collateral ▪ Have no voice in decision-making at the household level but also in the community ▪ Face nutrition and health problems Gender inequalities in rural development:
  4. ▪ Community based organizations: Encouraging new small business Investing in knowledge, skills, assets, services Supporting income-generating activities Mobilizing peer-to-peer support and mentoring ▪ Men Champions ▪ Clear visions ▪ Group cohesion ▪ Effective community mobilization ▪ Strong partners/could act as agent of change Opportunities Strenghts
  5. Outcomes/Achievements: ▪ Increased knowledge, skills, self- confidence ▪ Access to finance (+ more savings) ▪ Opportunity to participate and benefit from profitable economic activities; ▪ Increased presence, voice and influence in rural organizations; ▪ Achieved a more equitable balance in workloads ▪ Gained a better sharing of economic and social benefits
  6. Lessons Learnt: ▪ Community-based organizations with the wide range of opportunities provided are crucial for women’s empowerment ▪ Economic development alone cannot address gender inequalities and promote women empowerment (need for social mobilization, peer-to-peer support, household mentoring) ▪ Women’s heavy workload remain a key issue that often limits women’s productivity and involvement in economic activities Labor-saving technologies Household methodologies
