Women's Rights and Trade: Time for a radical change

13.06.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

This publication highlights a number of ways in which the current EU approach to trade impacts negatively upon women and girls. These overlapping areas of critical concern include 1) women’s right to decent work; 2) women’s livelihood; 3) gender-responsive public services and women’s unpaid care work; 4) policy space for developing countries to implement policies that promote women’s rights; and 5) the use of GDP growth as the compass for the EU trade policy. The document also recommends many measures that need to be taken to complement provisions referring to women’s rights in trade agreements.
