A background paper, “Falling through the Net? Gender and Social Protection in the Pacific,” by Gender Institute member’s Margaret Jolly, Helen Lee, Katherine Lepani, Anna Naupa and Michelle Rooney, has been published as one of the first papers in the new UN Women Discussion Paper Series. The paper was originally prepared for UN Women’s flagship report Progress of the World’s Women 2015-2016.
The Discussion Paper Series serves as a platform to showcase research on gender equality and women’s rights by feminist experts, with the aim of making it available to a broad audience of UN colleagues, civil society activists and policymakers.
The paper is available here.
