Expensive to be a woman trader: the hidden biases of tax policies in Nigeria and Zimbabwe
About the event
Do women and men experience tax systems the same way? What exactly do we mean when we talk about taxation in the context of Africa? And how can we ensure that tax systems at the local government level are equitable? In this seminar, the panellists will answer these questions by discussing their research on the gender dimensions of taxation in markets in Nigeria and Zimbabwe.
