OUR PHILOSOPHY OF PURPOSE

The distinct challenges in different societies of the world on the issue of gender mainstreaming have set the ball rolling in the Win Institute for Gender Studies (WIGS). The creation of a platform for the discussion of the role and position of men and women in society becomes imminent; the essence being to promote tolerance for gender and to systematically eliminate gender inequalities. WIGS is designed to provide participants with inter disciplinary lens through which to examine human conditions and experiences; gender role development; legal, political, economic, social, and cultural systems. Gender awareness benefits individuals, communities, organizations and institutions because gender operates as a factor on socio-political and family institutions and policies. WIGS is therefore out to eliminate gender stereotypes in society, support a work-life balance, greater representation of women in decision-making process, and stop violence against women
