Council of Europe Gender Equality Strategy
Gender mainstreaming is not an end in itself, but an instrument towards the ultimate goal of achieving equality between women and men. In this context, there is a wide consensus that a dual approach is necessary to effectively promote gender equality including:
► Specific policies and actions for the advancement of women, including positive action, and
► The promotion, monitoring, co-ordination and evaluation of a gender mainstreaming strategy in all policies and programmes.
