GENDER ANALYSIS OF SECONDARY LEVEL IN PUNJAB TEXTBOOKS: A QUALITATIVE STUDY
Gender analysis is a process for understanding the differential place of women and men in society, as well as of girls and boys in the classroom. While it can be used for quantitative studies, gender analysis is particularly suited for qualitative research because it seeks answers to the “why and how” of gender inequality. This article is an example of using gender analysis in qualitative research at a macro-level for policy and programmes. The Status of Women in Pakistan, a government agency responsible for policy analysis and development on gender in country, developed an essentially qualitative gender-based analysis approach for assessing the existing situation. Content analyse of Punjab Text Book Board (PTB) of four books will show the current situation and for further line of action.
