ActionAid USA

For Support Of Valuing Women's Work For A More Equal World

ActionAid USA will carry out in-country participatory research in South Africa, linking it to global analysis and advocacy in mainstream economic spaces relevant to women’s economic empowerment such as unpaid care burden, access to decent work and livelihoods, gender-responsive public services provision, and gender-just taxation. Learning from this research will be documented for adapting and replicating this project in other contexts. ActionAid will develop an international advocacy strategy and activities. They will work with feminist organizations in an international alliance, building their capacity to demand policy change within the broader frame of economic inequality.
