This official side event of the 2019 Commission on the Status of Women (CSW63) is a panel discussion on austerity and its impacts on gender inequality. The panel will explore how austerity measures have devastated women’s access to public services and increased their vulnerability in different European countries as well as in Latin America. Based on case studies, they will then discuss feminist strategies to counteract these developments.
