15.2 WoC has been assisting the Government in implementing gender mainstreaming since 2002 with a view to including gender perspective in its public policies. WoC developed the Gender Mainstreaming Checklist (the Checklist) – an analytical tool to assist government officers in incorporating gender needs and perspectives into the policy formulation and programme development processes in a systematic manner – so that women and men can have equitable access to, and benefit from, society’s resources and opportunities. Thus far, the Checklist has been applied to over 43 specific policies or programme areas which are of relevance to women, including women with disabilities. In addition, staff of many bureaux and departments have also applied the gender mainstreaming concept in the course of their daily work. 15.3 WoC maintains close liaison with different women's groups, including women with disabilities, and meets them from time to time to discuss issues of mutual concern. 59

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
