Some reflection on Gender Financing in Addis Ababa Accord

You may find is interesting to read this blog on gender financing in the Addis Ababa Accord.  It was published in The Guardian yesterday June 25th.  Click Here  A quote referencing May 6th draft “The current draft of the Addis Ababa Accord starts well by stating a commitment towards gender equality and women’s rights, but falls short on staying true to this vision throughout. Lack of recognition of the structural causes of gender inequality, such as the disproportionate responsibility of unpaid care borne by women and girls, means it risks focusing only on what women can do for the economy rather than on how the economy must work in a way that supports rights for all.”
