 Claiming Women's Economic, Social and Cultural Rights

From women's lived daily experiences and social and cultural roles, they know the central nature of ensuring adequate and nutritious food is avail- able for the family, the importance of being able to easily access clean water, of having a safe and secure dwelling and access to a health centre and medicine. Women know that due to their work life being more often interrupted because of care-giving and childrearing obligations, or because their work is not formalized, or because they have always been paid less than their male colleagues, their access to adequate social security benefits when they are older may be limited. Women know that school fees, lack of adequate sanitation and privacy, sexual harassment by male teachers and policies excluding young mothers all create significant barriers for girl's educational opportunities. Women know that gender stereotypes impact their ability to achieve equality and success in work, education, politics and at home. Women know the daily impact that poverty and inequality have in their daily lives. As a group, women have less social, economic and political power and are disproportionately poor. In the context of the global financial crisis and deepening economic inequality, women are affected disproportionately by the presence or absence of social programs and policies that ensure health care, education, child care, housing, food and water because women are the principal unpaid providers for these needs when the State fails to do so.
