Leah Eryenyu is an emerging political economy analyst deploying Pan-African and intersectional feminist tools of inquiry to examine and understand systemic injustices and their manifestations. She is interested in challenging and dismantling structural inequalities in a world increasingly controlled by plutocrats. She is currently the Head of Programmes at Akina Mama wa Afrika (AMwA) where she provides strategic leadership to the team across seven African countries in the thematic areas of Women’s Political Leadership, Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights and Economic Justice and Climate Action. Her work looks at the intersection of economic exploitation and gender oppression and its implication on the achievement of broader women’s rights. In this regard she focuses on issues of tax and labour rights, but with contributions to a diversity of other macro-economic policy issues. Leah’s research and writing interests include economic governance focusing on tax justice and Illicit Financial Flows, corporate accountability, and decent work for women, particularly those in global value chains.
