For a gender-transformative digital new deal


The current dominant order of the digital age has intensified exclusion, extraction, commodification, and capital accumulation.

This order is provoking the exacerbation of gender and intersecting inequalities that trigger exclusion, predominantly for women and women workers worsened by the unjust current organisation of care and exposure to digital violence. 

 In this context, GI-ESCR has co-sponsored a parallel event at the United Nation’s Committee of Status of Women 67th session about a new common agenda for a gender-transformative digital new deal, with PSI, DAWN, ActionAid, OXFAM, CESR, GI-ESCR, GATJ, TJN, Womankind, FEMNET, and IT for Change.  

 The discussion was focused on a common approach to frame the digital new deal in a way that transforms unjust gender relations and fulfils women’s rights.  

The participating speakers were:

  • Rosa Pavanelli, Public Services International (PSI) 

  • Nandini Chami, IT For Change 

  • Amina Hersi, Oxfam 

  • Liz Nelson, Tax Justice Network (TJN) 

  • Yiping Cai, Development Alternatives with Women for a New Era (DAWN) 

  • Kelti Cameron, Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) 

  • Wangari Kinoti, ActionAid 

  • Katia Schnellecke, Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Foundation (FES) 

  • Meghna Abraham, Center for Economic and Social Rights (CESR)
