A gender-sensitive indicator is simply an indicator that measures gender-related changes in society over time. By identifying the changes in the status and roles of women and men that we want to achieve and knowing how we will measure them, we can analyse our programme outcomes to see whether we are contributing to gender equality. Using gender-sensitive indicators can also help us to understand how changes in gender relations happen, which enables more effective planning and delivery of future work.
