Summary of two evaluations of the program to prevent gender violence in El Salvador
Summary and synthesis of two evaluations of the Program to Prevent Gender Violence in El Salvador.
This report summarizes two independent, but complementary evaluations that were carried out between July 2010 and August 2011. The first evaluation by Laura Roper conducted in September 2010, assessed the effectiveness of coalition advocacy strategies in terms of policy and practice change at the national and, to a lesser degree, at the municipal level. The second, conducted by Mo Hume in June 2011, analyzed change in the perspectives and experiences for women in two municipalities — Ahuachapán and San Marcos — against a baseline from similar 2008 case studies she conducted in each municipality. She also reviewed nation-wide evidence for change in women’s empowerment and exposure to violence.
