Transforming the mainstream: building a gender-responsive bureaucracy in the Philippines 1975-1998

This book traces the long and varied history of the National Commission on the Role of Filipino Women (NCRFW) from its early days as a rather traditional women’s organization to its pioneering work in envisioning gender mainstreaming and striving to put the vision into concrete practice. It outlines the strategies used by NCRFW to act as a catalyst for gender mainstreaming and the mechanism that it has developed in order to institutionalize mainstreaming.
