Cuevas-Parra, P, Stephano, M and Zhu, Y (2016) Unpacking gender equality approach to children and young people’s participation. World Vision.

Abstract

This discussion paper explores the intersection between child participation and existing theories and typologies of gender equality in order to understand the impact of gender roles in the engagement of girls and boys in participatory activities. With the gender-transformative approach being one of its key approaches, World Vision’s Strategic Direction for Child and Youth Participation team supports the urgent need from the field to unpack this approach and make it relevant and usable for child participation practitioners across regional and national offices. Gender transformative is an approach that seeks to challenge and transform rigid social norms and relations through critical reflection and the questioning of individual attitudes, institutional practices and broader social norms that create and reinforce gender inequalities, marginalisation and vulnerabilities.
