Public policy research has established that the outcomes and effects of government policies are gendered and consideration of the gendered effects of policies can be a powerful means to promote gender equality as well as delivering more efficient policymaking. A common technique used in this process is Gender Responsive Budgeting (GRB).
GRB analyses whether and how revenue collection and budget expenditure will affect women and men differently (Stotsky, 2016, p. 4). It takes many forms and can be implemented at different stages within the policy and budget process (Hodgson & Morrissey, 2017). Fundamentally, it aims to ensure that policies either produce gender equal outcomes or redress current gender inequalities.
