Rutgers’ innovative and comprehensive toolkit for implementing a gender transformative approach has been designed as a resource and a guide to support the integration of a gender transformative approach (GTA) into sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) programmes and organisations.
Module 1 forms the core of Rutgers’ GTA. It explains what we understand by GTA, why it is important to apply GTA to SRHR interventions and starts to explore how to do this. This module contains six chapters on the following interrelated components: 1. The human rights-based approach 2. Power 3. Norms and values 4. Gender and diversity 5. Empowerment of women and girls 6. Engaging men and boys
