Gender mainstreaming (GM) has been identified in academic literature as a crucial topic for both public attention and academic research. This is because GM is currently considered an essential strategy for achieving the highly sought-after outcome of gender equality in public organisations. However, an exhaustive degree of academic, practitioner and advocate attention has been paid to challenges observed in the GM process. Specifically, concerns have crystallised on the following twin 'puzzles': (i) conceptual confusion and (ii) the challenges of operationalising the process. The central purpose of this book has been to make a contribution in relation to both of these academic and practice-based issues at a time when questions appertaining to gender equality are reaching critical mass. Moreover, we are simply not there yet in terms of our aspirations for gender equality in public organisations and new insights on strategies used to move us forward need to be brought to the foreground to engender progress. To address the aims of the book, the author uses three novel argumentative-turns to interrogate the politics of mainstreaming from a critical perspective.
