For Support Of The Valuing Women's Work For A More Equal World Project
Type of SupportProject
This supplemental grant to ActionAid USA will extend their ongoing work on valuing women’s work. Activities will include local assemblies with young women in South Africa to disseminate the findings of a study on unpaid care, access to decent work and livelihoods, gender-responsive public services, and gender-just taxation. In addition, the women will produce a 100-day plan to inform and track gender-related commitments made by governments. At the global level, ActionAid USA will publish the findings of a mapping research project on inequality; implement an advocacy strategy to influence international financial institutions; and integrate learning from this research to adapt and replicate this project in other contexts.

for a project to ensure that economies and public service systems work for women and girls globally
ActionAid USA is the U.S. branch of ActionAid International, which is a global federation working for a world free from poverty and injustice. ActionAid’s work aims to build local to global momentum for social, economic, and environmental justice, driven by women and young people living in poverty and exclusion. This grant will support ActionAid’s work on women’s economic justice and rights through the Young Urban Women and Valuing Women’s Work programs in Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, and South Africa, as well as regionally and globally. These programs collaborate in challenging mainstream macroeconomic policies, narratives, and institutions that fail to recognize and value women’s paid and unpaid work and undermine their access to decent work and bodily autonomy and integrity.
