In this document, we attempt to interrogate such assumptions in the context of women’s rights / gender equality / women’s empowerment work, where M&E approaches create particular kinds of challenges. Part I provides a critique of current M&E frameworks as experienced by women’s organizations and movements worldwide, and attempts to articulate some principles and attributes that can engender our M&E approaches. Part II offers a compendium of a large number of M&E frameworks and tools, along with a critical analysis of some of their strengths and weaknesses in assessing women’s rights and gender equality processes and impacts.
