Taxing men and women: why gender is crucial for a fair tax system

Publisher: Christian Aid
Publication Date: Jul 2014
This report from Christian Aid highlights the importance of gender analysis in work on tax justice. It considers three sources of tax revenue: direct taxes, indirect taxes and trade taxes, and explains how women are affected differently than men by each source. It ends with a series of recommendations for civil society organisations working on tax justice, governments and revenue authorities in developing countries. It also has a series of annexes containing information to help conduct gender analysis of tax policy and systems.
