Islamic Relief Gender Justice Policy

 

Islamic Relief (IR)’s mission is to eradicate poverty and end human suffering. To achieve this, it is crucial that issues of injustice are given a major focus, along with the reasons injustice persists. Within the category of injustice is gender injustice, which IR is prioritising within this paper. “Gender” is the social term which identifies personas female or male. It suggests roles, characteristics, behaviour and activities which are seen as appropriate for men and women in a given context. The term “sex” describes the biological distinctions between men and women. This document focuses on the central components of IR’s Gender Justice Policy, and it will inform other policy briefing papers on gender-based violence and other related topics. In support of this process, IR has launched a Global Gender Working Group and is consulting with gender experts from international organisations.
