GENDER IS SIMPLE: IT MEANS WOMEN AND MEN TREATING EACH OTHER LIKE EQUAL HUMAN BEINGS WITH EQUAL HUMAN RIGHTS AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITIES
GameChange Network blog is managed by Linda Mayoux as an informal network of people and organisations aiming at innovation, learning and advocacy for Gender Justice – empowerment of women and men of all ages to change their lives and help others change theirs.
It aims to bring together partners and innovations on two levels:
- Empowerment methodologies (particularly experience and innovation in Participatory Action Learning System (PALS), Gender Action Learning for Sustainability at Scale (GALSatScale) and Financial Action Learning System(FALS)) that enable women and men to identify and implement their own individual and collective strategies for increasing human rights, particularly women’s human rights as stated in 1979 UN Convention on Elimination of ALL forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) and the rights of children youth and older people.
- Macro-level mainstreaming of gender and generational justice aims and strategies identified at community-level into institutional decision-making and practice and policy advocacy. This includes empowerment mainstreaming in private sector, cooperatives, financial service providers and donor development programmes and projects.
This blog is a partner initiative to other global web resources for the GALSatScale methodology:
- GALSatScale Global Network website:http://www.galsatscale.net
where full details of the methodology and links to other GALS processes can be found.

The blog is an ongoing voluntary project that is updated as new work is done. It also aims to promote sister initiatives and the skills of network members and be a focus for member discussion and exchange.
PLEASE SIGN UP TO JOIN US and contribute your thoughts and comments. If you would like your organisation, or your own personal website to be included in the links, please include those details in your mail. Or as a comment on the blog. I am hoping very much that the network will grow, and link with other likewise initiatives so that together we can really make a difference.
