How social protection, public services and infrastructure impact women’s rights
We look at the ways that social protection, public services and infrastructure interact with women’s rights and gender equality. If Governments maximise available resource spending in these areas, it can be a powerful tool for gender equality and women’s rights when implemented in an integrated gender-responsive and transformative way. Written in partnership with FEMNET.
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.
