Shifting Power

Inequality is widespread and deepening,with the impact falling heavily on poorwomen who face a range of differentintersecting challenges. Solutions are hotlydebated by powerful decision makers in andoutside government who sit far removed fromthe lived experience of inequality.Shifting Power is based on focus group discussionsand interviews in communities in seven developingand emerging economy countries where ActionAidis active: Brazil, Haiti, Liberia, Nepal, Nigeria,South Africa and Uganda. Groups of women wereasked how they experience inequality and, mostimportantly, how they are addressing inequality.We found that across the countries, when womentake collective action on the many challengesfacing them, they feel better equipped to addressinequalities within their families and communities.
