Severe under-representation of women and girls in economic and wider societal decision-making at all levels adds further to the structural inequalities. Women are also hit harder by austerity, not least due to their strong dependence on accessible quality public services. This includes, for example, childcare and elderly care, which are services of particular importance to women, since they often end up stepping in with unpaid care work when such public services fail. Women are also highly dependent on quality public healthcare services, and the lack of such services have dire consequences. For example, approximately 830 women die every day due to pregnancy- or childbirth-related complications, the majority of which could be prevented if quality health care would have been accessible.

Insufficient levels of public funding, as well as an increased role of private finance in public service provision, leading to introduction of user fees and exclusion of marginalised groups, are some of the drivers that undermine the accessibility of quality public services for all, women’s human rights and the objective of leaving no one behind.

Eurodad works to overcome economic inequalities, including gender inequality, promote economic justice and maximise the availability of public funding to support quality services for all.
