Towards a just feminist economy

All women should be able to exercise choice and control over economic opportunities, outcomes and resources, and shape economic decision making at all levels. However, the current global economy does not work for women and undermines the achievement of women’s human rights. The theme at the 63rd United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) looks at public services provided by the State and the critical role these services play in ensuring women's rights.

To coincide with CSW we've launched 'Working towards a just feminist economy: The role of decent work, public services progressive taxation and corporate accountability in achieving women’s rights'This briefing outlines key economic areas that need to be addressed in order to secure women's rights including: 

- Barriers in the world of work
- The role of public services 
- Fair and responsible taxation
- Corporate accountability

As part of the global women’s movement, Womankind and partners will keep working, advocating and campaigning for a just feminist economy that achieves women’s human rights for all.
