Gender Training and Resource Guide
The Namibian Constitution enshrines gender equality, and many laws have been passed which give substantive meaning to this laudable concept. The National Gender Policy 1997 and the National Gender Mainstreaming Plan has provided a clear and visionary framework for the transformation of gender relations. Some ministries have risen to the challenge and created gender main- streaming policies and plans. This Gender Training and Resource Guide is a tool for empowerment. It combines facts, resources and action-orientated exercises designed to understand, challenge and address inequality in all aspects of life. It is a truly Namibian Guide – speaking to us about our experience – and how we can transform our lives.
