International Socio-Legal Feminisms (CRN 38) and its FemTax working group will host a day-long training workshop on the legal, analytic, and policy principles used to analyze the gender impact of tax, spending, and other economic policies within an equality framework.
When: June 4, 2012
9 am - 4 pm, reception
and dinner, 4.30 to 7 pm
Where: Hilton Hawaiian Village,
(Iolani Suites 7-8 and 2-4)
Purpose: Women remain economically unequal in every country, and overall economic inequalities have been growing as neoliberal policies focus on ‘going for growth’ and capital mobility while ignoring human well-being. This workshop provides an overview of how economic policies in budgets, tax laws, and government programs reinforce women’s economic inequality, and how to identify changes to fiscal and spending programs that can help move toward greater equality in all spheres of life. The goal of this workshop is to expand feminist use of gender-based policy analysis, distributional measures, and gender budgeting to examine how governments allocate resources to women’s needs and priorities, and to construct alternatives to contemporary ‘austerity’ and ‘growth’ approaches.
To attend: For further information or to register, contact Ann Mumford (email@example.com), Asa Gunnarsson (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Kathleen Lahey (email@example.com).
Presenters include interdisciplinary critical feminist legal scholars specializing in law, gender, and equality with experience in tax, spending, and budgetary analysis. This invitation is not limited to those attending the LSA conference.
The program will be followed by an informal reception for networking and further discussion. This program, refreshments, lunch, and reception are free of charge. All sessions and materials will be presented in English and some French.
