Making the case for macroeconomics in gender equality work
Around the world, the way women live and work is shaped by economic policies that dictate the kinds of employment, resources, benefits and decision-making power available to them. That said, we have yet to achieve an economic system that serves women’s needs, recognises their contributions and facilitates their empowerment in every aspect of life.
This new briefing, produced as part of our Gender Equality and Macroeconomics (GEM) project, argues that true empowerment begins with tackling the structural barriers that women face, and that this means turning our attention to macroeconomics and its impact on gender equality and women’s rights.
