Taxes & Women's Rights?
Eva Garzón Hernández, Coordinator of the Tax Justice Together project within Oxfam Intermón, wrote a great introductory entry in (des)igualdad, a blog published by Spanish newspaper El Diario, to mark the #Taxjustice for Women's Rights campaign launch.
“The actual tax system, Garzón Hernández writes, is full of loopholes that lead to disproportionate enrichment of a few multinational corporations and great fortunes, at the expense of public services and policies necessary for Women's equity. March 8th is approaching, a date that amplifies a constant and global fight for women's fundamental rights. In this context, the #TaxJustice movement joins with women's organizations from around the globe to add its voice on their claims, with some very specific demands".
