Why is women’s work the worst?


The causes Women’s economic inequality is not natural or inevitable. The permanent subsidy to the global economy that poor women’s work represents is a human-made, structural problem: a direct consequence of policies, laws, systems and power structures that prevent women from achieving their true potential and living decently rewarded and dignified lives. There are at least four major structural causes that drive this injustice.
1. Growth at any cost: economic policies fuel inequality in work
2. Caring for our people: not counted, not rewarded
3. Financing for gender equality: short of the mark
4. Women’s voices: silenced and ignored
