Case Study: The Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor
Gender mainstreaming is a new approach to designing and assessing government and municipal activities. This approach increases transparency and ensures that public activities are designed to address the differential needs of women and men.
Gender mainstreaming entails a new way of thinking about the differences between women and men (and between girls and boys) – their behaviors, roles, and needs – every time a program or a budget is designed or assessed.
A gender analysis cannot be performed on the work of the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor because not all the departments collect data by gender.
In the absence of data disaggregated by gender, and out of a desire to promote a gender analysis of state programs and budgets, this document highlights areas in which data should be collected by gender and the benefits that could be derived from such data.
