Women's Rights and Tax Justice

From South to North, women are largely excluded from the structures and powerful systems that dominate domestic and international fiscal policy and financial architecture. Women’s rights and tax justice communities are uniting to change this. Earlier this year in Bogota, Colombia, researchers, advocates, public service trade unionists and activists from the tax justice and women’s rights movements convened a global meeting of leading organisations and thinkers. 

The Bogota Declaration on Tax Justice for Women’s Rights, a result of this convening, sets out shared values, and demands rights for women which can be realised through structural, systemic, cultural and fiscal policy changes. In light of the recent Paradise Papers and Panama Papers tax haven investigations, action for tax justice is urgently needed to end inequality. Your organisation is invited to share this vision, to sign up to the commitments of the Declaration and work with us to realise the full range of fundamental human rights for women. 

Organisations are invited to sign on to the Bogota Declaration at this link.
