Evaluating the gender sensitivity of parliaments: A self assessment toolkit by IPU
While parliaments vary in their level of gender sensitivity, there is room for improvement across the globe. This toolkit is relevant to all parliaments, whatever political system they adhere to and whatever their stage of development. The self-assessment process is not intended to rank parliaments, but rather to help parliaments to identify their strengths and weaknesses in order to determine priorities for strengthening the institution.
The toolkit provides a framework for discussion among members of parliament, decision-makers in the parliamentary administration and parliamentary staff. The discussion should lead to a shared vision of the priorities for parliamentary development and then to recommendations for action to address these priorities. Click here to access the toolkit.
