Posted Dec 22, 2020 | Align Platform, ODI, Caroline Harper, Rachel Marcus et al

Gender norms are implicit informal rules about appropriate behaviour for people of different genders. In this research report by the Align Platform and the ODI, Caroline HarperRachel Marcus et al examine how gender norms have changed since the UN’s Beijing Platform for Action on women’s rights was crafted in 1995, and their role in progress and setbacks to achieving these rights. The report discusses four key areas critical to shifting gender norms to achieve lasting change: education, sexual and reproductive health, paid and unpaid work, and political voice and representation.
