Gender Equity Toolkit

APGF and its member Parties are committed to Gender Equity and to supporting women to become Green party members, to take leadership roles, and to participate confidently in the political activities of their respective countries.   APGF understands Gender Equity to mean fair treatment for women and men, according to their respective needs. This can be equal treatment or different treatment as long as both men and women have the same rights, benefits, obligations and opportunities.

STRUCTURES         POLICIES        ACTIONS        

This Gender Equity Toolkit has been developed by the APGF to help our member parties increase women's’ participation, leadership and electoral success in their own Green Parties and the APGF.  Members and others can use this Toolkit to:

  • improve your understanding of what Gender Equity is;
  • put structures in place to increase women's participation and leadership;
  • develop policy relevant to and inclusive of women;
  • take action to support women to join Green parties, become active in those parties as well as stand for and be elected to public office.

In this toolkit you will find examples of structure and policies as well as case studies from other Green parties.  If you can’t find what you need contact [email protected]  we would love your feedback to improve this toolkit.
