Gender Equality and Justice Programming: Equitable Access to Justice for Women
Primers in Gender and Democratic Governance #2
This primer outlines the major obstacles and barriers women face in accessing justice and suggests strategies and interventions to overcome these challenges. Gender mainstreaming is not a goal in itself, but rather a strategy towards achieving equality between men and women. The majority of this primer focuses on women’s access to justice and the social relationships between men and women that disadvantage women and hamper this access.
