Framing Feminist Taxation: Making Taxes Work for Women
New publication provides guidance and recommendations for policy-making and advocacy that can influence and change our current economic and tax systems for a feminist future.
Women and girls are disproportionately hurt by current global economic and taxation systems. Even though challenges may differ from country to country, everywhere women tend to proportionately pay more taxes and benefit less from them, as gender-biased and regressive tax systems continue to deepen gender inequality. While the socio-economic crisis triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened this situation, it only highlights the urgency for structural changes to make taxes work for women.
