Measures to ensure gender equality are integral to effective rule of law, ensuring access to justice for all and institutions being effective, accountable and inclusive.

This toolkit, developed by Chemonics for USAID, provides individuals assessing, designing, and managing security sector reform (SSR) programs with a roadmap for incorporating gender considerations. It includes an introduction to the relationship between SSR and gender, presentation of key gender issues within the sector, and practical how-to steps for integrating gender analysis and considerations into programming.
