[PDF] Putting Gender on the Business and Human Rights Agenda - Scoping Paper

Author: Kathryn Dovey, Director of Global Business Initiative on Human Rights and consultant to Realizing Rights, Published on: 1 June 2009

There is currently a marked absence of gender as an area of intervention or reporting or even as a discussion point within the growing field of business and human rights. This scoping paper seeks to address this gap in analysis and action by providing an assessment of gender issues in ongoing corporate responsibility initiatives and offering some recommendations for future actions. The paper is divided into three parts:
...Assessing gender inequalities...
...Taking stock of private sector gender initiatives...
...Incorporating gender into business & human rights...
