Gender Equality and Macroeconomics


The Gender Equality and Macroeconomics (GEM) project is coordinated by the Bretton Woods Project and carried out in partnership with the Gender and Development Network, International Women’s Rights Action Watch Asia Pacific and the Latin American Network for Economic and Social Justice. It is aimed at challenging the ways in which macroeconomic policies currently promoted by international financial institutions (IFIs) undermine gender equality and women’s rights. To change this, the project, initiated in 2015, examines the implications of current macroeconomic policy approaches in relation to gender, engages in direct advocacy and works to support a wide range of civil society groups and organisations towards building an enabling macroeconomic environment for women’s rights and gender equality.
