It explains what it is to mainstream gender policy and provides policy-makers with practical advice on how to pursue this issue in employment, social inclusion, as well as social protection. However, the general method can be applied in any policy area and beyond the timeframe of this book. The manual provides four-step method that policymakers can use: organization, learning the differences between the sexes, impact assessment of policies and redesigning policies.
