(3 How are the categories women and men described? A more integrated question (4) is: What are the consequences of gender mainstreaming for people outside of gender binary-thinking? The findings of the study showed that gender equality and gender mainstreaming is mostly about women and men. This also means that, if organisations wish to reach out and include more people, such as transgender identified people who are part of the population in the area, the work needs to continue from a deeper and wider gender perspective.
