Training Manual: Gender Leadership in Humanitarian Action

This resource is a training on the importance of gender leadership in Humanitarian Action. Gender interacts with multiple factors including but not limited to age, ethnicity, disability, caste, class, religion and environment, to determine an individual’s ability to be aware of, lay claim to, and access their rights and entitlements. These include essential services such as health and education, legal protection, access to capital and equal opportunity for active social and political participation – all of which affects individuals, their families and communities.
