Gender Analysis and Policy

Perspectives on Parliament

In Namibia, as in many other countries around the world, men and women receive different treatment due to their gender. In a variety of ways – including but not limited to institutional access, social biases, and cultural values – women are disadvantaged in comparison to men. To combat this gender-based inequality, it is important that laws and policies do not disadvantage women – and in many cases, actively try and aid women. This bulletin looks at the need to ensure gender analysis is central to policy- and law-making.
