Save the Children’s Gender and Power (GAP) Analysis Guidance is an essential tool to examine, understand, and address discrimination and inequality that prevent children, their families, and communities from claiming their full and equal rights. GAP analysis is a type of action research that investigates how gender and power inequalities intersect and helps staff and partners understand the types and depth of discrimination in each context. It supports the design and adaptation of programming that positively transforms unequal power relations and ensures all stakeholders can equitably access, participate in, be decision makers for, and benefit from activities. Ultimately, this research enables evidence-based programming and advocacy that advance gender equality and social justice.
