Increase Women’s Economic Empowerment by Transforming the Care Economy

December 6, 2022 – Generation Equality is a multi-stakeholder initiative convened by UN Women in partnership with civil society, youth, governments, the private sector and philanthropists to catalyse partners, increase investments, drive results and accelerate the full and effective implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action and the Sustainable Development Goals.

As part of the collective work of the Generation Equality Action Coalition on Economic Justice and Rights, the 17 entities leading the work (the ‘Leadership Structure’) co-developed Blueprints on four prioritized Action Areas:

ACTION 1 – Increase Women’s Economic Empowerment by Transforming the Care Economy 

ACTION 2 – Expand Decent Work and Employment in Formal and Informal Economies 

ACTION 3 – Increase Women’s Access to and Control Over Productive Resources 

ACTION 4 – Promote Gender-Transformative Economies and Economic Stimulus 

Each Blueprint lays out a rationale, presents important data and statistics and defines a powerful vision for success, as well as proposed strategies and tactics that are grounded in collaborative action through bold and, as much as possible, collective stakeholder commitments. Consequently, the Blueprints are meant to serve as guidance and inspiration for new and existing commitment makers to the Action Coalition, the other Generation Equality Action Coalitions, and the global community.
