Cascading Crises and the World of Work: Implications for Women’s Economic Empowerment and Decent Work

Walby, S. (2016). Cascading Crises and the World of Work: Implications for Women’s Economic Empowerment and Decent Work. Geneva: UN Women Expert Group Meeting, preparation for UN Commission on the Status of Women.

Abstract

Cascading crises change the possibilities for women’s economic empowerment. They reduce options for women. Analysis of such crises can make visible the components of the macroeconomic environment that shape gender inequality in work and employment. This can contribute to a theory of change by identifying the gendered levers relevant to the transformation of gender inequality at work.
