This week on Policy Forum Pod, we hear from Naila Kabeer about how gender impacts poverty and inequality, and take a look at whether the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals genuinely advance women’s empowerment.
On this week’s Policy Forum Pod, Naila Kabeer discusses the gendered nature of poverty and inequality with host Sharon Bessell. Why are women affected differently from men? And how effective are the United Nations’ (UN) Sustainable Development Goals in addressing the issues? They discuss everything from poverty as both a state and a process, to how domestic violence and the patriarchy intersect, and the importance of disaggregated data and gendered wording in the UN.
