Gender Equality and Women Rights

There has been an active participation of women in economic and social milieu of Bangladesh, yet the country is plagued with institutions-induced gender differentiations. The Unnayan Onneshan finds that the moderate progresses in the development of women’s status are also, to a large extent, caused by compulsions for survival and not outcomes of self-serving assertions of opportunities unleashed by policy reforms. The research on gender and women rights is informed by complexities of structure and institution at play, which perpetuate patriarchy. The research questions are advanced on the basis of rights, equality and justice and also unearth disparities, suboptimal institutions and policies that retard emancipation of women. The programme undertakes research on all aspects of gender issues, specifically focusing on concerns pertaining to women workers’ right, sexual harassment of women and representation of women in the society. Through its research programme, the UO tries to suggest way out of existing inequalities between men and women in the society.
