This online resource will guide you in implementing the OECD Recommendation on Gender Equality in Public Life. In addition to better familiarising you with the Principles, the Toolkit lets you compare indicators and good practices in use in numerous countries. The self-assessment tools will help governments assess the strengths and weaknesses of their gender policies, which in turn, will help policy makers set priorities for improvement.  A downloadable version of the Toolkit is available here.

The toolkit is divided into four pillars - government, parliament, judiciary and public administration.


Institutional and governance frameworks


Gender sensitive practices in parliaments


Gender sensitive practices in the judiciary

Public administration

Gender sensitive public employment systems
