RWSN E-discussion: HOW WOMEN ARE LEFT BEHIND IN CONTEXT OF RURAL WATER SUPPLY? COMMENT LES FEMMES SONT LAISSÉES DE CÔTÉ DANS LE CONTEXTE DE L’APPROVISIONNEMENT EN EAU EN MILIEU RURAL • Online: https://dgroups.org/rwsn/equality_rwsn.


To celebrate the International Women Day, RWSN LNOB group would like to host an E-Discussion between 6 and 15 March on how inequalities between men and women manifest itself in the context of Rural Water Supply. We intend to summarize the contribution to the E-discussion in a blog on RWSN website, mentioning the contributor (unless requested not to).

25 years after adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (1995), UN-Women executive director reports that no country has achieved equality for women and girls and significant levels of inequality between women and men persist. Critical areas of insufficient progress include access to decent work and closing the gender pay gap; rebalancing of the care workload; ending violence against women; reducing maternal mortality and realizing sexual and reproductive health and rights; and participation in power and decision-making at all levels.
We are looking for a very wide participation from women and men, civil societies, private sector, engineers, local governments, national governments, NGOs and funding organizations so please let people know about this. We hope to use the E-discussion as an opportunity to bring different perspectives and discuss what has worked and NOT worked in reducing inequalities between women and men in the context of rural water supply.
We would like to hear from you:
1. What are the major discrimination/barriers women and girls face to access and use rural water supply in your context or based on your experience? How is their experience different from men and boys?
2. What are the major discrimination/barriers women face to participate in decision making related to rural water supply at different levels (household, community, work (paid and unpaid), local and national government, etc.) in your context or based on your experience? How is their experience different from men and boys?
3. Whether/how women and men experience (paid and unpaid) work in rural water supply sector differently in your context or based on your experience?
4. How do you see the power dynamics in rural water sector in your context or based on your experience?
5. How other aspects of their identity i.e. age, disability, economic status, education, migration, religion, cast, ethnicity, marital status, sexuality, etc. increase or decrease the way they experience the discrimination?
6. What has worked and/or NOT work in your context in removing barriers/reducing discrimination women and girls face in context of rural water supply?
The E-discussion is open to anyone who registers on https://dgroups.org/rwsn/equality_rwsn. If you are not a member of RWSN LNOB group, but are interested in the topic, we also encourage you to join. If you have problems joining, please contact sandra.fuerst@skat.ch.
To participate in this E-discussion you can simply reply to this email or send an email to equity@dgroups.org and answer one or more of the above questions. Please be specific in your responses about the context you are referring to and whether it is your own experience of feeling discriminated and/or based on your observations from work, study, research, etc.

We realize that some of the issues raised in this discussion are very delicate. If you would like to share your insights, but are not comfortable with this being attributed to your name, please send an email directly to the thematic facilitator, sara.ahrari@simavi.nl. She will assist you to make your submission in confidence.
