Abstract and Keywords

This section contains four articles that examine how feminist activists have brought crucial issues, such as women’s role of in the care and informal economies; gender-responsive budgeting; and gender dimensions of poverty, production, trade, and taxation, into the economic and social policy arenas. The first discusses the politics of care, social provisioning, and social reproduction from a global development perspective and how care has developed in feminist theory and practice. The second focuses on feminist transnational organizing on gender and trade, citing the International Gender and Trade Network as a successful example of feminists bringing a rights-based approach to economic policy in the global arena. The third deals with gender-responsive budgeting and feminist practice and analysis in fiscal policy. The final article looks at the Tanzania Gender Networking Programme to demonstrate how global feminist practice and theory support and learn from local grassroots research and activism in Tanzania.

Keywords: women, feminism, care, gender-responsive budgeting, gender, trade, economic policy, fiscal policy, activism, Tanzania
