Brief Description


A National Gender Equality Policy and Action Plan 2014-2024 was developed through extensive research and consultation and identifies specific actions to be taken, indicators and outcomes to monitor implementation, and key stakeholder responsibility for advancing gender equality in Grenada. One of the main aims of this policy is to break traditional barriers forged by years of discrimination through patriarchy. As it relates to gender, culture and socialization, government has been committed to engaging the main institutions of socialization including but not limited to the home, school, church and the media in tacking harmful mindsets and promoting positive and harmonious relations between the sexes. Therefore, the implementation of this policy tackles gender stereotypes head on and is partly aimed at eradicating discrimination through an evolution of mindsets.
