#TaxJustice Women’s Rights photo exhibition in advance of International Women’s Day

Join ActionAid for the launch of our #TaxJustice for Women’s Rights photo exhibition, on Thursday the 2nd of March, at 6.30pm, with visiting speakers from Zambia, Nigeria and Kenya.

This powerful photo exhibition explores the real impact tax injustice has on women. Developing countries lose hundreds of billions to corporate tax dodging every single year, robbing the world’s poorest women of their health, safety from violence, access to education and employment and equality, while weighing them down with unpaid care work.

When tax avoidance and tax breaks starve public services of funding, it’s women and girls who pay the highest price.

Three African tax justice activists will launch the exhibition, sharing their stories. These inspiring women, from Zambia, Kenya and Nigeria are leading the fight for tax justice in some of the world’s poorest communities
