New briefing: How social protection, public services and infrastructure impact women’s rights

In our latest briefing, written in partnership with FEMNET, we look at the ways that social protection, public services and infrastructure interact with women’s rights and gender equality. We conclude that governments should maximise their available resources for spending in these three areas, which can be powerful tools for gender equality and women’s rights when implemented in an integrated gender-responsive and transformative way.

Spending on appropriately designed social protection, public services and infrastructure that is gender-transformative can be an efficient and effective way for governments to fulfil their commitments towards gender equality if they carefully target state resources in a way that meets women’s, and especially marginalised women’s, needs and priorities.
