Making the global tax system fairer and closing loopholes would be a huge benefit to women.

That's the view of Winnie Byanyima, Executive Director of Oxfam International, a confederation dedicated to fighting poverty worldwide.

Speaking at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank Spring Meetings, she said that it was vital to address the economic challenges faced by women and girls.

Ms Byanyima is a former Ugandan parliamentarian and was Director of Gender at the UN Development Programme (UNDP).

Jocelyn Frank asked her how economic inequality was also impacting on gender inequality.
