Fundamental to the achievement of social and economic justice is the full realization of women’s and girls’ rights, and equal participation of women and girls in all spheres of development. The Amphitheatre Session will discuss the factors that contribute to addressing gender equality and women’s empowerment within the context of development cooperation. How can the definition of economic development be broadened to consider the intersectional inequalities faced by women and girls? How can the contribution women and girls make in unpaid care work be recognized? Are their gender dimensions of illicit financial flows and domestic resource mobilization?
