Towards feminist advocacy on macro-level economics

As in all advocacy work, there is a danger that we, as women’s rights advocates, might focus too narrowly on our immediate objectives, losing sight of how they support our vision for a more just society. When it comes to macro-level economics, that risk is especially great given the distance between where we want to be and where we are now, and the way that we have to shape and constrain our language and arguments to be heard by the mainstream.

In that spirit, GADN and FEMNET created a space, in July 2018, where feminist advocates, primarily from the global North, could step back and consider how our work is contributing to longer-term goals—and whether it is truly transformative. Read the workshop report.
