Oxfam Report Oxfam Report

World’s billionaires have more wealth than 4.6 billion people.

These are startling figures. Governments around the world need to take action to ensure equal opportunities are given to girls and women in both the education and employment sectors.

According to Oxfam “The 22 richest men in the world have more wealth than all the women in Africa.” “Women and girls put in 12.5 billion hours of unpaid care work each and every day —a contribution to the global economy of at least $10.8 trillion a year, more than three times the size of the global tech industry.” “Getting the richest one percent to pay just 0.5 percent extra tax on their wealth over the next 10 years would equal the investment needed to create 117 million jobs in sectors such as elderly and childcare, education and health.” https://www.oxfam.org/en/press-releases/worlds-billionaires-have-more-wealth-46-billion-people
