Gender Equity refers to the process of being fair to women and men by taking their different needs into account and not limiting them because of these differences. Gender Equality refers to the principle in which men and women, boys and girls are afforded equal rights and opportunities.  Building on these two pillars, Gender Mainstreaming could be incorporated which is a process of assessing the implications of any planned action for women and men, and girls and boys and involves the reorganisation, design and evaluation of policy processes. This will aid in the production of a gender just society as a gender perspective is incorporated in all policies at all levels and at all stages, by those involved in policy making and programming.
