Gender-transformative approach toolkit – 5 Ways to Transform Negative Gender Norms Into Positive Ones
The toolkit consists of 5 separate modules (also available in French) and is based on Rutgers’ gender-transformative approach. This approach examines, questions, and transforms rigid gender and sexual norms and underlying power imbalances, with the aim of inclusively improving the sexual and reproductive rights of young people. It also addresses the root causes of sexual and gender-based violence – which impacts one in three women worldwide – and other harmful practices.
Rutgers believes in changing norms and values that tolerate, justify, and legitimize violence. Otherwise, it will be impossible to prevent and end sexual and gender-based violence and ensure the rights of all young people.
In the toolkit, each module delves deeper into a part of sexual and reproductive health and rights:
- Module 1 – Six Interrelated Components
- Module 2 – Comprehensive Sexuality Education
- Module 3 – Youth-Friendly Services
- Module 4 – Advocacy
- Module 5 – Organizations and Institutions
