This report aims to contribute to Arab civil society efforts towards social justice by considering the links between tax and gender inequality, based on research conducted in Egypt, Lebanon and Tunisia. It accompanies a report from the Arab NGO Network for Development (ANND), Tax Justice and Sustainable Development in the Arab Region.

 

Gender inequality in tax policies has been an issue of global concern in recent years.2 The effect of taxation policy on gender equality has been a key topic in the debates on public finance, financing for development and the responsibility of governments towards citizens.3 Taxation is not only a source of revenue for governments, but also an effective instrument to redistribute wealth and income, so a gender equality perspective in tax policy is essential to better address gender gaps in wealth, income and opportunities.
