How Should We Measure Women’s Economic Empowerment?
November 15 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
“The terminology describing economic programs for women has changed: actions to ‘empower women economically’ have replaced efforts to ‘increase women’s productivity and incomes.’ But how can we actually measure ‘economic empowerment’? Last November, CGD, in collaboration with Data2X, IDRC and the World Bank Africa Gender Innovation Lab organized a panel discussion on possible measures and issues. Since then, new research has been conducted which raises alternative perspectives on these measures.
The event, co-sponsored by CGD, Data2X and IDRC, will mark the launch of a new book, Measuring Women’s Economic Empowerment: Lessons from South America. Co-Editor Susana Martinez-Restrepo will present main findings from field work in Colombia, Peru and Uruguay. A panel discussion with some of the leading experts on the topic will follow the launch.” Read more and register here.
