Join us to share experiences of women's poverty and how gender budgeting can help end women's poverty.

The 68th session of the Commission on the Status of Women will take place in New York from 11 to 22 March 2024. As part of CSW68, Women’s Platform have organised a side event entitled Gender Budgeting: a solution to women’s poverty.  This side event will feature a presentation on the Consortium’s research into the Impact of the Cost of Living Crisis on Women in Northern Ireland. 

This online session will explore how feminist approaches to economics, including gender budgeting, can create change. It will highlight Northern Ireland as an example of how gender neutral policy making has worsened the cost-of-living crisis for women, and share women’s stories, as pointers to priorities for change. It will also share examples and perspectives on how gender budgeting can shape policy change, including from Malaysia, where civil society is building new collaboration with decision makers, and explore a new feminist agenda for ending women’s poverty.

You can register to attend this side event online here and it would be great to see as many of you as possible at the online event to support the research and the wider calls for Gender Budgeting.
