Welcome to Genet

You have reached the homepage of the Gender Equality Network (GeNet), part of the Economic and Social Research Council’s (ESRC) Priority Network Programme.


Note: GeNet finished on 31st March 2010. This website will still be updated with gender related working papers and news.


GeNet aims to explore the changing dynamics of gender equality in contemporary society, bringing together nine substantive projects, spread across eight institutions and involving some twenty researchers from a wide range of disciplines. Such a Network has the critical mass, diverse expertise, time and resources to make a significant impact on one of the most pressing social issues of our time.

This website provides further information about the projects, the participants and GeNet news and events. It also contains a growing resource of information for all those interested in gender equality, with links to a wide range of governmental and non-governmental agencies, research institutes and data sets.

Jacqueline Scott, Network Co-ordinator.
