In 2014, a Senior Gender Adviser working for a hyper-masculine department at the United Nations (UN), made a request to her supervisor to be invited to the weekly Senior Management Meeting ; she wanted to present an important development in the work of gender mainstreaming. Access was granted, but her intervention was put as the last point of the agenda, under what is commonly referred to as "Any Other Business" (AOB), thus sending the not so subliminal message that gender-related work was too trivial to be an actual agenda item that warrants more time for discussion, such as security, military deployment, police work and rule of law.
