A Sample Gender Analysis (Abridged)


This document is a condensed version of a full gender analysis of a food security program in Ethiopia. We hope that program staff will use this condensed version as a template when conducting their own gender analyses.

The document provides an example of what a gender analysis looks like and the questions it seeks to answer—as well as how to collect the data, analyze findings, and incorporate those findings into a program strategy. Conducting a gender analysis is an important step in helping program staff understand and address gender inequalities to maximize program results and outcomes and achieve a greater impact in the communities they serve.
