Produced as part of the Women Engaging Globally campaign, WEDO created this factsheet outlining the impact of U.S. economic policy on women worldwide.

While the United States has guided the creation of a global economic system based on women’s continued economic inequality, alternative systems are possible. Women in the United States must mobilize to challenge these negative economic policies and promote alternative frameworks and policies that truly refl ect women’s work and needs, and are conducive to achieving gender equality and economic justice. We must see that governments and corporations are held accountable to protecting women’s rights.
