For the Network of Women Leaders for Development, a lucid reflection on the issue of economic and social justice is inseparable from a perfect understanding of the problem of incentives. Following the climatic calamities and the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic, it would be wrong not to ask how we could wage an effective fight to guarantee economic and social justice for women, the first victims of the calamities. natural.

However, when unpaid care work is the sole prerogative of women in the home, they are limited in their choice and their possibilities of engaging in other activities, in this case paid activities or educational and educational activities. those of leisure.
  • Also, judicial authorities must ensure that general and detailed guidelines relating to the investigation and prosecution of crimes of economic and gender-based violence are not only respected but also developed.
