BRICS Feminist Watch (BFW) submitted a letter to the top management of New Development Bank expressing the need for the Bank to develop comprehensive commitment to gender equality in all its structures and operations. For this BFW recommends three points:
1) set up an external multi-stakeholder gender advisory committee
2) develop a comprehensive, mandatory gender policy to guide all NDB’s structure, governance and operations
3) Set up an internal gender unit with senior feminist experts within NDB to lead these processes.
Formed in 2016, the BRICS Feminist Watch (BFW) is a feminist alliance from the BRICS countries that brings the collective strength of feminist analysis and activism to promote gender responsive and inclusive economic development.
