Abstract:

This paper presents findings of a review of gender trends and issues in Ecuador in demographics health, violence, education, labor markets, and social protection. It also briefly describes the current macroeconomic context and poverty situation as well as recent gender-related institutional and legal advances, and includes a more comprehensive section on gender issues in rural development. The report finds that as a long-term strategy, gender policies and programs should address socialization processes that reinforce traditional gender roles. Short term measures, however, need to focus on the acute and immediate needs of the population. This gender work should also focus on boys and men. The report identifies six priority action areas. First, consider both female and male gender issues when designing and implementing social safety nets and emergency assistance programs. Second, strengthen indigenous people's initiatives so that they address gender differences and disparities. Third, address issues such as maternal mortality, AIDS and STDs, teen-age pregnancy, and family planning in an integrated fashion under the rubric of reproductive and sexual health. Fourth, develop initiatives to address at-risk youth. Fifth, define and strengthen the institutional framework on gender at the national level. And sixth, evaluate ongoing work on gender to examine lessons from past gender interventions.
