Gender, Poverty and Employment: Information, analysis and strategies for poverty reduction through decent work for women and men

This course, based on the ILO “Gender Poverty and Employment” approach, will help you gain a better understanding of the dimensions of poverty, and formulate gender sensitive strategies to address them. Gender-based inequalities differentiate the processes that lead women and men into poverty and out of it, and interact with race, ethnicity and other possible grounds for discrimination. Poverty can also be traced to problems in the world of work - unequal access to employment opportunities, poor working conditions, powerlessness, and economic and social insecurity.

This programme will lead you through the linkages between poverty, lack of access to and control over productive assets, and gender-based discrimination. You will see how the gender-based inequalities and discrimination in the world of work play a role in the circle of poverty and how their elimination has to be part of an integrated poverty reduction agenda.
