Extracting Equality – A Guide

Publish What You Pay and UN Women are working together to integrate gender perspectives into natural resource governance, so that when we say we want all citizens to benefit from their resources, we really mean all citizens. To this end, we created a value chain that shows how you can approach gender at every step in the extractive process.

In parallel with globally recognised human right frameworks, we believe that women’s participation should be increased at every level and in every activity along the extractive value chain, in government, civil society and the private sector.

Women’s leadership and participation should be promoted in all discussions within the extractive industries sector. Women are actors, not victims, and it is time they had a better way to engage with natural resources.
