Gender Equality Initiative in Malaysia: A Training Manual for CSOs/CBOs

ARROW GEI_CSO Manual_2021-page-001

This training manual was developed as part of ARROW’s Gender Equality Initiative (GEI) in Malaysia. Launched in 2020, the GEI aims to contribute to the implementation of relevant CEDAW and UPR concluding observations and recommendations, specifically the adoption of the gender equality act that aims to abolish discriminatory laws and policies against women and girls and fulfill the human rights of the LGBTIQ community against discrimination and violence in Malaysia.
This manual is an attempt to create a space for people working towards social justice to be able take a step back and revisit elements of their work using a gendered lens. We hope that the experience from this workshop will increase people’s awareness and sensitivities towards issues faced by women, girls and LGBTIQ+ persons in Malaysia and that participants will be inspired to play an active role in promoting gender equality, specifically the sexual reproductive health and rights of women, girls and LGBTIQ+ persons.
