What is gender-sensitive rights-based monitoring?

Rights-based monitoring is an activity carried out to protect, advance and strengthen human rights and to prevent violations in this field. Rights-based monitoring contributes to combat against gender inequality in all spheres of life, strengthens participatory democracy by enabling civil society organizations to assess public policies and services, and paves the way to more effective conduct of advocacy activities by making violations of rights visible.

Why gender equality monitoring?
