A book of practical methods from the Swedish Gender Mainstreaming Support Committee
Gender Mainstreaming Support (JämStöd) is a Swedish committee of inquiry that has worked for two years under a government mandate to provide information about gender mainstreaming and to develop practical methods and models for mainstreaming gender into central government activities. A further task of the committee has been to train central government administrators in the practical implementation of the process.
We have collaborated with a number of government agencies that have led the way in seeking to ensure that the services they provide to the general public benefit women and men equally. This book contains our most tried and tested methods. We hope that it will inspire both those of you who want to start the ball rolling and those who wish to take JämStöd’s methods and models for gender mainstreaming a step further.
