Gender and Precarity
This initiative explores how systems and societal “norms” governing gender and economics create financial instability for women and gender non-conforming individuals. Focused on applying a gender lens across five key issues — workplace structures, affordable housing, sexual violence, occupational segregation and immigration — the initiative emboldens organizations to pursue financial stability for all genders as the primary strategy for ending economic injustice and achieving equality.
Using a combination of Re:Gender's programmatic tools—annual summits and convenings, primers and Gender Stats — we will draw our network into a wide-ranging exploration of research and action on specific issue as they relate to precarity. Our goals are to:
- Strengthen other organizations' use of a gender lens to highlight issues that overlap to create economic instability
- Facilitate shared understanding and resources across sectors and disciplines to inform the development of programs, policies and public education campaigns
Topics covered in the initiative include:
Occupational Segregation Series
Sexual Violence Series
