In this publication you can follow five stories of how women’s rights organisations work to overcome the economic inequalities in their own way. Some of the key lessons learnt are:
- the crucial role women’s rights organisation play in promoting economic gender equality;
- that women’s economic empowerment is rarely achieved in isolation, it is closely linked to other processes, such as preventing gender-based violence, increasing women’s decision-making power in the household, strengthening their inheritance, land ownership and property rights, etc;
- how advocacy is necessary to draw attention to economic gender inequality, improve labour rights legislation, strengthen services and make budgeting more gender-sensitive.
