I am pursuing second year of research concerning gender budgeting initiatives and their impact on social policies. Gender budgeting is a broad framework defining methodologies for the gender analysis of public policies emphasizing that any macro level initiative has a micro-level impact and vice-versa. Gender budgeting does not aim at creating a separate budget "for a specific gender" rather it involves the critique of the government budget to establish its gender-biased nature and call for change. It is a tool for advocacy based on feminist epistemology and praxis. My research focuses on specific gender issues in public health and budgeting in India.
