Extreme inequality is out of control. Hundreds of millions of people are living in extreme poverty while huge rewards go to those at the very top. There are more billionaires than ever before, and their fortunes have grown to record levels. Meanwhile, the world’s poorest got even poorer.
Many governments are fueling this inequality crisis. They are massively under taxing corporations and wealthy individuals, yet underfunding vital public services like healthcare and education.
These policies hit the poor hardest. The human costs are devastating, with women and girls suffering the most. Despite their huge contribution to our societies through unpaid care work, they are among those who benefit the least from today's economic system.
This has to change – and change is possible.
Please join us to demand world leaders to tax the rich fairly, invest in vital public services and lift women and girls out of poverty.
Extreme poverty vs extreme wealth: how big is the inequality gap?
A fairer world is possible
The growing gap between rich and poor is undermining the fight against poverty, damaging our economies and tearing our societies apart.
Yet inequality is not inevitable – it is a political choice.
Governments around the world must act now to build a new, human economy that values what truly matters to society, rather than fueling an endless pursuit of profit. An economy that values the care work of women and girls instead of billionaires' wealth. An economy that works for everyone, not just a fortunate few.
Join us to urge our political leaders to invest in vital public services and tax the rich fairly, and to ensure everyone has secure jobs paying decent wages. It's time to fight inequality, and beat poverty for good.
