Mainstreaming gender allows for justice projects to be developed around the understanding that sex, gender, sexual orientation and gender identity play a role in shaping experiences of crime and criminal justice.
This brief aims to highlight that there is a differentiated impact that laws, policies and practices have on men, women, and individuals of diverse bodily characteristics, diverse sexual orientation and/or diverse gender identities; and justice issues are sustained social power relations. Recognising this allows for responses to counter biases built into such institutions and structures and ensures that gender-sensitive understandings of the experiences, needs, priorities, capacities and rights of all individuals are taken into account in any criminal justice reform.
The thematic brief on mainstreaming gender in justice projects/programmes provides a step-by-step guidance on how to practically mainstream gender throughout programme documents.
