Gender, or how societies define appropriate roles for men and women, is a critical lens of PRB's media work, publications, community building, and training activities. Funded mainly through the IDEA project, PRB's gender work includes moderating the Interagency Gender Working Group (IGWG) website and listserv; editing and publishing materials that guide gender communities of practice globally; and organizing events that apprise development experts of new research and best practices in a wide range of gender issues, including gender-based violence, child marriage, and sex ratio at birth.

Some of the most recent publications on gender issues are:

An Engage presentation, "Family Planning and Gender Equality: Partners in Development"

A policy brief, When Technology and Tradition Collide: From Gender Bias to Sex Selection

A high-level event by the IGWG: "Vision, Innovation and Action to Address Child Marriage"
