CSW61 Factsheet: Women’s economic empowerment in the changing world of work

January 2017

Ahead of the 61st Session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW61), the Gender & Development Network has developed a factsheet which provides an overview of the structural economic barriers to women’s economic empowerment. For each of these areas, the factsheet makes recommendations to governments.

Areas covered in the factsheet include:

-          Decent work

-          Universal social protection

-          Unpaid care work

-          Discriminatory social norms

-          Corporate regulation

-          An enabling macroeconomic environment

The Gender & Development Network has also produced in-depth briefings on these issues, which can be found on the Briefings page of our website.
