In support of the Memorandum Circular No. 2011-01 dated October 21, 2011, MCL CLIR created a collection for Gender and Development (GAD). Philippine Commission on Women defined GAD as the development perspective and process that is participatory and empowering, equitable, sustainable, free from violence, respectful of human rights, supportive of self-determination and actualization of human potentials.
MCL CLIR has both print collection and eBook subscription available on GAD.
The Philippine Commission on Women has revamped its Digital GAD Library to improve your access to our knowledge products and other digital GAD resources. User experience (UX) is important for us as we embark on boosting our digital presence.
This very first book on gender and development of the Philippine Institute for Development Studies articulates the salient challenges confronting men and women today. It features research studies on the apparent lag in the education of boys, the gender differences in educational mobility, the important roles of housework in the economy, the effects of nonmarket work such as housework on labor market participation, and the gender pay gap in agriculture. This volume will hopefully widen the public's understanding of these gender issues and stimulate our policymakers to reflect on the evidence and recommendations.
Gender equality and women's empowerment are essential for meeting Asia and the Pacific's aspirations of inclusive and sustainable development. ADB recognizes that to reduce poverty rates, helping women and girls must be a priority in its work.
