The ESRC Gender Equality Network (GeNet) aimed to explore the changing dynamics of gender equality in contemporary society, and brought together nine substantive projects, spread across eight institutions and involved more than twenty researchers from a wide range of disciplines.

The Network included both quantitative and qualitative approaches to investigate the processes of selection and exclusion that reflect and create gender inequalities in changing lives and structures. Our nine projects were organised around three inter-linking strands:

  1. pathways to adult attainment
  2. resource allocation in (re)production: gender, ethnic and class inequalities
  3. policy responses to gender inequalities in employment and work-life balance.

The network objectives have remained unchanged from the outset. Our aims were:

  • to inform policy
  • to disseminate our work to non-academic users
  • to produce high quality academic research
  • to contribute to theoretical debates
  • to further the ESRC’s mission to enhance methodological skills.
