This book is designed to provide basic conceptual denitions to support and accompany “A Step by Step Guide to WEL” (2014), as part of the Women’s Economic Leadership in LAC 2014 Series. It provides simple denitions that facilitate the understanding of complex problems, concepts and solutions, underlying the WEL methodology. It is limited to some key denitions, and does not aim to be comprehensive. This book will provide the reader with:  ã A refreshed or reinforced understanding of basic gender justice denitions ã A theoretical basis for developing simple new strategies to facilitate changes in gender and power relations   This book was largely adapted from Oxfam Great Britain LAC’s Cultivating Change: a conceptual framework for gender justice in market-based livelihoods programmes (Fries et al., 2010), as a document developed to support staff in strengthening Oxfam’s work in LAC on market-based livelihoods and gender justice.
