"The UNESCO toolkit on Gender Indicators in Science, Engineering and Technology"

Gender Indicators in Science, Engineering and Technology
Sophia Huyer & Gunnar Westholm
UNESCO, 2007

The Toolkit is intended to provide a better understanding of the numbers and needs at stake in the participation of women in science and engineering, including quantitative and qualitative indicators for the participation of women and under-represented groups, especially in developing countries. It reviews the main theoretical and methodological approaches to data collection internationally and presents case studies, guidelines and new approaches related to the collection and analysis of gender-disaggregated data. In so doing, it establishes a new basis for evidence-based analysis enabling planners and policy-makers to address these issues with greater effectiveness.
