PFM Blog Celebrates the International Women’s Day

International Women's Day
Posted by Teresa Curristine and Richard Allen[1]

International Women’s Day (IWD) celebrates the achievements of women worldwide, while calling for action to advance gender equality globally.  We are reminded today that the COVID crisis has widened existing inequalities and disproportionately impacted women. Reflecting these challenges, the theme of this year’s IWD is Women in Leadership: Achieving an Equal Future in a COVID-19 World. This celebrates the role and hard work of women during the crisis but also calls for action to address its impact on women.

Public financial management (PFM) has an important role to play in helping to translate gender goals and policies into action such as a country’s national development plan and budget. It is not only about ensuring that gender programs and activities are funded, but also about providing a gender lens through which to view the budget.

Over the past couple of years, the PFM blog has published a series of articles on various aspects of gender budgeting, including several workshops organized by the IMF. We offer below a recap of these articles and hope you enjoy reading them again.
