DATA DRIVES POLICY CHANGE
Sex-disaggregated data highlights the differing experiences, needs, constraints, and opportunities for women, girls, men, and boys. Data disaggregated by sex is critical to structuring policies and programs.
This means asking “who questions” in a meeting, a call, an email, or a survey:
• Who owns land?
• Who works in a certain job category?
• Who drops out of secondary school?
• Who serves on corporate boards?
• Who is being hired?
• Who goes to engineering or nursing school?
• Who is elected to office?
It also means collecting information about the different ways in which women, men, girls, and boys are treated.
• Are women and men paid differently for the same job?
• Are they promoted at the same rate?
• Do they have the same access to the internet?
• Do girls and boys obtain birth certificates when they are born?
• How often are girls and boys called on by their teachers in the classroom?
The questions are endless.
