Bringing gender in : a gender analysis tool to help you explore the gender impacts of your policy Ministry for Women - Wellington, New Zealand : Ministry for Women, 2019 - electronic resource

This is an online tool to assist policy advisors to explore the gender impacts of any policy as they move through the policy process.

It was launched by the Minister for Women, Julie Anne Genter on 1 July 2019 .

At the launch of the tool on Monday 1 July, Margaret Retter, Director Policy at the Ministry for Women, acknowledged the gender analysis in a Cabinet paper prepared by the Joint Venture Business Unit in the Ministry of Justice.

“The Ministry for Women carried out a survey of gender analysis in Cabinet papers between July 2018 and December 2018. One of the Cabinet papers that particularly stood out to us established the joint venture to lead and coordinate a whole-of-government response to family violence and sexual violence.”

“This paper recognised that family violence and sexual violence are driven by gender inequities in society. It recognised that particular groups of women including Māori and Pacific women, young women, women on a low income, rainbow people, women in gang-involved families and women with disabilities are at a higher risk of experiencing family violence than other women, and are more likely to experience secondary victimisation when seeking help. And it noted that a strong gender analysis is a critical component of the Government’s response to family violence and sexual violence.” (From the media release).

The tool includes examples of projects and policies which demonstrate gender analysis in action. Record #6344
