The USFMEP workshop provided an introduction to gender analysis. Participants considered key gender concepts and a selection of gender analysis frameworks, approaches, tools and questions. Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) are being called upon to play a more proactive role in supporting gender equality. In this workshop we explored the tools and instruments NGOs can use to facilitate gender analysis and build awareness on two important international instruments -Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) and UN Security Council Resolution 1325.
