    Abstract

    Cet article cherche à déterminer dans quelle mesure les programmes de l’initiative de la Stratégie de Réduction de la Pauvreté ont contribué à promouvoir l’égalité des sexes dans les politiques publiques en Bolivie, au Honduras et au Nicaragua. Les processus de SRP présentent, en théorie, des opportunités pour promouvoir l’égalité entre les sexes à travers la participation de la société civile dans l’élaboration des stratégies ainsi que leur gestion et suivi, et aussi par l’intermédiaire des stratégies elles mêmes et de leurs mises en place. Mais de nombreuses conditions doivent être réunies et ceci n’est pas sans risque. Les résultats sont mitigés. Ni les contenus des programmes nationaux de réduction de la pauvreté, ni les processus de participation au premier programme de SRP, n’ont fait avancer l’égalité des sexes. Toutefois, les processus plus récents de consultation et de suivi des SRP ont permis aux femmes d’être mieux entendues et ont aussi favorisé l’engagement des organisations de défense des droits des femmes avec les bureaucraties gouvernementales. Le processus de SRP a également stimulé le développement de programmes sur les thèmes des droits des femmes et de l’égalité entre les sexes, ce qui a contribué à une meilleure prise en compte de certains droits des femmes dans les politiques publiques.
