The aim of the Women's Economic Justice working group is to develop and promote policy recommendations towards the achievement of women’s economic rights and justice.

Co-chairs:

Chiara Capraro (Womankind Worldwide) and Preethi Sundaram (IPPF)

Objectives:

The objectives of the group include:

  • Building understanding and consensus among INGOs and decision makers on the structural nature of women’s economic inequality
  • Promoting alternatives, in the context of current UK and global development policies and programmes, based for example on work done by feminist economists and organizations such as Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID) and the International Association of Feminist Economists (IAFFE)
  • Providing a forum for GADN members and other like-minded organisations to build alliances for women’s economic rights and justice
  • Influencing the UK Government’s relevant development and international policies

On January 19th 2015, the group hosted an event: Making economics work for women: Responding to gender discrimination at the heart of macro-economic policy and achieving economic justice for women. A podcast of the event will be available soon.
