Titled “Tax justice: A powerful means to address inequality”, it addresses the inter-relations of the Tax Justice fight and the women’s rights struggle.

“Tax is considered a complex topic, but it affects us all, Othim says. Tax as a source of government revenue is a powerful means to address inequality and to tackle world poverty.
I know this firsthand both as a tax justice activist and as a Kenyan woman”.

She presents the south-led Global Alliance for Tax Justice, who “acts as a uniting campaign front for the global tax movement – bringing together civil society groups in coalitions at the national, regional and international levels”.

Othim then recaps the #TaxJustice for Women’s Rights Global Days of Action, held from 8-24 March this year.

“This new campaign was timed to be launched on International Women’s Day and to coincide with the UN Commission on the Status of Women annual meeting. Women’s rights, trade union and tax justice groups joined together in campaign actions in more than 35 countries”.
