About the product

Addressing the lack of progress on women’s economic empowerment, this publication highlights promising and innovative approaches from all regions of the world, illustrating the range and combination of activities and ways in which these activities address and contribute to women’s economic empowerment, and, more broadly, to the achievement of the MDGs. The publication focuses on three core dimensions: economic opportunity; legal status and rights; and voice, inclusion and participation in economic decision making. Useful to development planners and practitioners in governments, United Nations agencies, civil society and the private sector, this publication serves as a vehicle to generate ideas for scaling up and guiding future work.
