Advancing Economic and Social Rights from a Feminist Perspective
CWGL seeks to build women’s and feminist leadership in the area of economic and social rights, and develop alternative feminist approaches for the realization of economic and social rights for all. Within this context, the Center facilitates inquiries into, and deconstructs, practical and theoretical understandings of the ways in which macroeconomic policies positively and negatively affect women, households, communities, nation-states and the global economy.
CWGL advances economic rights from a feminist perspective first and foremost through its work with social justice and feminist organizations to address inequalities through a human rights lens. We develop feminist analyses together with women leaders, and (1) conduct feminist economic justice trainings and workshops, (2) advocate at the United Nations, and (3) produce popular education materials to share our analyses with others.
