Pathways’ Perspectives: Challenging the narrative... on gender

Ahead of International Women’s Day 2020, Development Pathways wanted to challenge the assumptions underlying policy narratives and discourses that stereotype men and women in social protection.  
  • What are the prevalent assumptions that perpetuate ‘gender myths’ in social protection and social policy? How do we break these stereotypes of policy discourse?
We were joined by progressive thinkers and experts in this area who are and have been challenging gender narratives.
