Webinar Presentation - Realising rights: how can social protection advance gender equality?

Slide presentation of the webinar held on 19 February 2019. Ahead of the 63rd Commission on the Status of Women (CSW63) with its priority theme on “social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure for gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls”, and in light of the UN Secretary General’s report on the topic, this webinar explored the links between social protection and the realisation of women's rights and gender equality. The webinar is one in a series of ODI and Department for International Development (DFID) webinars on this theme.

This webinar, organised by the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) and UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), and co-hosted with the Gender & Development Network (GADN), has brought together practitioners and experts across the field of social protection and gender to explore the following key questions:

• How can social protection advance gender equality?

• What are the lessons learned on what works in social protection policy and systems in reducing gender inequality? Which policy features may inadvertently contribute to reinforcing the problem? 

• What are the key challenges to implementing gender-responsive social protection policies and how can this agenda be accelerated moving forward?
