This paper argues that single-level conceptualisations of gender mainstreaming and equality within organisational or legal policy domain are inadequate to capture its contextual and multilevel nature.
It develops and offers a multilevel perspective on this issue and situates it in the context of Pakistan, a developing Muslim majority country in South Asia.
Based on a review of macro-level factors (e.g., laws, policies and culture), meso-level factors (e.g., organisational interventions) and micro-level factors (e.g., intersection of gender with social class and family status) in Pakistan, the paper develops a contextual perspective on gender mainstreaming to achieve gender equality at multiple levels.
