“Advancing Southeast Asia Through Gender Mainstreaming“
Gender inequality has become a salient issue considering that most societies in Southeast Asia are predominantly patriarchal, not to mention the immense occurrence of gender-based violence in the region. This has induced an increase in gender-based advocacy movements in the region’s grassroots level of society. One of the discourses promoted by the advocacy movements to the policymakers is Gender Mainstreaming, an internationally encompassing strategy to materialize gender equality as mentioned above, deemed a solution to alarming gender-based issues such as gender-based violence derived from gender inequality through its demand for greater consideration based on gender perspective in the policymaking process.
At the regional level, although ASEAN has shown its initiative on gender mainstreaming through ASEAN Gender Mainstreaming Strategic Framework, cooperation between member states on eradicating gender-based alarming issues is still very limited. In addition, ASEAN member states’ awareness and commitment to gender issues are also questionable considering the predominant patriarchal Southeast Asian society. As a consequence, the region still has yet to see formidable progress in eradicating gender-based alarming issues such as gender-based violence. Thus, it raised an urgency to push for a greater role of ASEAN in increasing member states’ commitment and awareness of Gender Mainstreaming and intensifying cooperation between member states in the effort to eradicate gender-based alarming issues.
