FEMINIST OPEN GOVERNMENT: HOW DOES IT LOOK LIKE?
This is one of the most interesting papers with recommendations on best practices and opportunities emerging from research on open government from a feminist and gender data perspective in 12 countries across Latin America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. The case studies were purposefully selected to include countries where governments were already taking action around gender equality, whether through a National Action Plan commitment or engagement with local women’s groups. What actions and strategies should a Feminist Open Government adopt and how are they related to the main issue of this site are clear: here some of the conclusions
- Promotion of Gender indicators and narratives around it
- Mandatory requirements for equal participation of women on national and/or technical committees and minimum numbers of gender-sensitive or gender-transformative commitments
- Exploring funding mechanisms to improve women’s meaningful engagement in the OGP, including support for capacity building, technical knowledge, co-creation, as well as engagement and child care to sustain participation.
