Tax Justice and Gender Equality Conference 2021 - Feminists organising globally on tax justice and women’s rights webinar
December 07, 2021 at 3:00pm - 5pm
Host: GATJ Tax and Gender Working Group.
Title: Feminists organising globally on tax justice and women’s rights.
Co-hosts: Members of the GATJ Tax and Gender Working Group.
Description: This session is co-organized by members of the Global Alliance for Tax Justice (GATJ) Tax and Gender working group. The session will be an interactive and participatory session that will introduce the tax and gender working group to new members. Speakers will highlight the nexus between tax justice, gender equality and women's rights by looking at the different types of taxes and their implicit and explicit gender biases and impacts, as well as the impact of tax avoidance by large multinationals and wealthy individuals. The session will explore how we can tackle illicit financial flows in order to finance women’s human rights and take action for progressive gender-just tax systems. We will do this by looking at the following 3 broad areas.
1. Why tax justice is a women’s rights issue.
2. Resourcing Women’s Rights – the impact of illicit financial flows, especially tax dodging on availability of resources.
3. International frameworks and national relevance.
The breakout rooms segment afterwards will be a meet and greet opportunity for members of the working group to network and connect.
