      Because the impacts of shocks affect men and women differently, it is useful to think of them (as well as boys and girls) as different constituents in any analysis; social protection This paper is a discussion of the role of gender issues in social protection policies, strategies and programmes, and as such it shows that vulnerabilities to risk.   Social protection from joblessness ought to consider an employment benefit for men and women ready and willing but unable to find work. The evidence is compelling, and the search is on for appropriate responses to the crisis. The hope is that it will receive serious consideration.

    This brief synthesizes research findings, analysis and policy recommendations on the strategies that were used by UN Women’s Multi-Country Office in the Caribbean to promote gender-responsive social protection in a context where reforms have been driven mainly by efforts to reduce public debt and promote economic competitiveness. Undoubtedly every woman, or for that matter person, has the right to social protection as enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. To this end, achieving long-term sustainable and inclusive growth for all and, in turn, the SDGs would mean that social protection systems are necessary.

      Also at the forefront of the development agenda is social protection, or social security, and its SDG target , committing countries to implement national social protection systems for all, including floors, to prevent and reduce poverty and inequality. Without considering older women, the SDGs and other UN commitments risk failure. Social protection policies play important roles in giving women access to labour markets, addressing economic risks faced by working families and helping poor households meet their basic needs.

The human rights-based approach to social protection requires states to ensure that social protection programmes are designed, implemented and monitored taking into account the differences in the experiences of men and women.

The impacts of social protection programmes are not gender neutral. As such, States must ensure that programmes address women’s specific needs throughout the [ ].

This brief synthesizes research findings, analysis and policy recommendations on making social protection floors work for women. It draws on key findings of UN Women’s flagship report, Progress of the World’s Women – Gender and Social Protection in the Developing World introduces a much-needed gender lens to these debates.

Drawing on empirical evidence from poor households and communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America, the book provides rich insight into the effects of a range of social protection instruments.

Social protection programs are a powerful tool for alleviating poverty. They include conditional and unconditional cash transfers, food rations, public works programs, school feeding, and programs targeted to the elderly and disabled. Gender and social protection 3 1 Introduction The aim of this paper is to inform policy-makers on how gender issues should be taken into account in developing social protection policies, strategies and programmes.

‘Gender’ refers to women’s and men’s roles and responsibilities that are socially determined (WHO, ). Social protection programmes need to recognise the differentiated impact of risks on men and women. Addressing gender issues in social protection involves: Improving access to social protection in the labour market and extending social insurance to the informal sector, where women are disproportionately represented.

It covers key topics related to gender equality and social protection, featuring a wide range of contributions from women policy practitioners and scholars, presenting case studies and reflections from Brazil and various African countries.

The issue of social protection was at the top of the agenda at the United Nations’ 63rd Commission on the Status of Women, held last March. Nongovernment organizations, activists, policymakers, and academics called for increased support for women in the labor market, including initiatives to encourage employment and the provision of social support, such as childcare services.

But it is all the more difficult for a poor woman with limited education or training and little or no access to social protection or support. Add to that the pejorative discourse about single motherhood and ‘dependency culture,’ and the situation can be overwhelming.

The case for designing social protection for women in developing countries. Social protection seeks to prevent, manage, and overcome risk. and widowed women's ability to benefit from social protection designed for men is even more limited.

Thanks a great deal Marie. I do quite agree with your thought on this, notably on the issue of the 'will power' to initiate and/or re-align social security benefits that are capable of providing the right environment for women's economic empowerment.
