We have already used some of the guidelines set out by the Gender Equality Duty when negotiating our contract for funding – before, we didn’t know about the duty. “We now talk with a greater understanding of our rights, and it has made a huge difference – now we fight back even stronger! Knowledge really is  power, and getting information through the internet is just not the same. Having the chance to meet a group like Southall Black Sisters was so very important and had a huge impact on us… we did not feel alone with our struggles. We thoroughly recommend this toolkit, as it contains many of the materials used on GenderWorks training courses, which have proved so useful to us in our work.”  This toolkit was written and compiled by the GenderWorks team: Sue Balcomb – England Country Programme Director.Steph Kendrick-Jones – Project Manager.Sue Smith – Equalities Policy Officer.Anna Grindle and Sandhya Sharma - Gender Skills Training Officers.Emma Feeny – Communications Officer.Thanks to GenderWorks staff Jane Moir, Kate Mansbridge and Haifa Cortbawi for their support, and volunteers Stephanie Ross and Ruth Rosselson for their contributions.The GenderWorks Toolkit was edited by Emma Feeny and designed by Katy Dawkins.GenderWorks would like to thank Adele Baumgardt, Engender, Sandy Ruxton, the Public Law Project, the British Institute of Human Rights, Southall Black Sisters, Media Co-op and the Equality and Human Rights Commission for their contributions both to this toolkit and to GenderWorks training courses.
