Approaching final destination: Envisioning gender equality as outcome
International Workshop, Florida International University, March 19-20, 2015

Over the last four decades, a myriad of different actors including women’s rights movements, governments, international organizations, and businesses have declared gender equality an important goal. More significantly, they have developed manifold initiatives to work toward that goal, bearing in mind that a more gender equal world requires proactive measures. However, we do not know much about the outcomes of gender equality policies. The workshop addresses this void. It brings together outcome-focused research on gender equality policies with reflections on how gender equality can be realized within broader parameters of societal change; it also connects academic experts with gender equality activists in Miami.
