The data can be obtained through national statistical offices and strengthened with information from national mechanisms for the advancement of women. The source should provide the detail of this indicator, with breakdowns by area or sector.
According to UN Women and adopting the conclusions agreed upon by the United Nations Economic and Social Council in 1997, “Mainstreaming a gender perspective is the process of assessing the implications for women and men of any planned action, including legislation, policies or programmes, in all areas and at all levels. It is a strategy for making women's as well as men's concerns and experiences an integral dimension of the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of policies and programmes in all political, economic and societal spheres so that women and men benefit equally and inequality is not perpetuated. The ultimate goal is to achieve [substantive] gender equality” http://www.unwomen.org/en/how-we-work/un-system-coordination/gender-mainstreaming.
Greater gender mainstreaming in national indicator systems allows for progress in the two aspects of priority measures 62 and 63 of the Montevideo Consensus: advancing towards the full recognition of women’s economic and social contribution to the development of society; and preparing and disseminating the gender statistics needed for the formulation of public policies on gender equality and the empowerment of women.
