Guide for Municipal Action on Women's Equity

Wise Practice

An overview of key issues facing women and concrete opportunities for Municipal Government to take action and move forward on women’s equity.



About / Lessons Learned

This publication presents how municipal governments are not only well placed to apply a gender lens to city planning and decision-making, but have an imperative to do so in order to adequately serve residents. By bringing women to the table, delivering gender-specific programming through an intersectional lens, gender mainstreaming governance and using data to inform decision-making and track progress, municipalities can enhance the inclusiveness of their communities and institutions.
