“Can you write something about our successes
in gender mainstreaming?” asks the boss.

Integrating a gender perspective into the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of policies, regulatory measures and spending programmes.
I re-read the sentence several times.
Sometimes I wonder
if I wouldn’t have been happier
as a caveman.
