The IMF and Gender Equality: Operationalising Change
By the Bretton Woods Project.
This work is part of the Gender Equality and Macroeconomics (GEM) project, a collaborative effort between the Bretton Woods Project and the Gender and Development Network (GADN), which aims to expose and challenge the ways current macroeconomics policies, particularly those promoted by the International Monetary Fund and World Bank, undermine gender equality.
The objective of this briefing is to stimulate debate and raise critical questions on the latest developments in the IMF’s approach to gender, both between civil society communities and within the IMF itself. It sets the IMF’s latest work against the background of long-standing feminist thinking, with the aim of encouraging the Fund to be ambitious in genuinely and meaningfully addressing feminist concerns in its work.
