Every day, in every country in the world, women are confronted by discrimination and inequality.
They face violence, abuse and unequal treatment at home, at work and in their wider communities — and are denied opportunities to learn, to earn and to lead. Women form the majority of those living in poverty. They have fewer resources, less power and less influence compared to men, and can experience further inequality because of their class, ethnicity and age, as well as religious and other fundamentalism.
Gender inequality is a key driver of poverty. And a fundamental denial of women's rights.
Worldwide, 1 in 3 women and girls will experience violence or abuse in their lifetime. Oxfam understands gender justice as the full equality and equity between women and men in all spheres of life, resulting in women tly, and on an equal basis with men, defining and shaping the policies, structures and decisions that affect their lives and society as a whole. Further improvements in legislation and policy are necessary but not sufficient.
We believe that transforming gender and power relationsand the structures, norms and values that underpin them, is critical to ending poverty and challenging inequality. We believe that women taking control and taking collective action are the most important drivers of sustained improvements in women's rights, and are a powerful force to end poverty not only for women and girls, but for others too.
Whether we are responding to an emergency, working on long terms projects with communities, or campaigning for lasting change, we tackle the inequality and deep-rooted discrimination that makes and keeps women poor.
We support women in their fight to have equal opportunities to secure jobs and fair pay as men, and have an equal chance to work their way out of poverty. We support women in their efforts to take part in decision-making at all levels and promote leadership and participation of women.
We work with partners in over 40 countries to stop violence against women by changing laws and challenging culturally accepted practices that treat women as second-class citizens. Throughout all our humanitarian response work, we tailor our activities towards meeting the different needs of women and men in a way that promotes equality between them. Achieving gender justice is not only a matter of basic rights.
And we all have an equal part to play in making it happen.
