The Global Gender Parity Initiative is a research and data-driven journalism project at New America. Through creative and powerful storytelling, the initiative enables important gender policy work to reach a much broader audience and thereby have a stronger impact. The initiative launched in Fall 2015 with a project to highlight the opportunities and challenges that emerge when measuring women’s unpaid work as part of a country’s GDP. Along with that project, it is now beginning work on another, which will research and report on how and why "gender mainstreaming" across foreign policy and national security policy has often failed to gain traction.
