This book introduces a gender lens into debates around social protection.  It draws on empirical evidence and data from poor households and communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America and provides an insight into the effects of a range of social protection instruments.  The book concludes that with relatively simple changes to design and with investment in implementation capacity, social protection can contribute to transforming gender relations at the individual, intra-household and community level.
