Publication Date: 

2002

This is a guide to integrating a gender analysis into evaluations of initiatives that use Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) for social change. It provides a means for determining whether ICTs are really improving women's lives and gender relations as well as promoting positive change at the individual, institutional, community and broader social levels.

The guide provides users with an overview of the evaluation process (including links to general evaluation resources) and outlines suggested strategies and methodologies for incorporating a gender analysis throughout the evaluation process. GEM does not contain step-by-step instructions to conducting evaluations.

A wide variety of organisations are using the GEM methodology in Africa, including the African Women's Development and Communications Network, Women'sNet, Women of Uganda Network, and the Zimbabwe Women's ResourceCenter.
