…if women in impoverished areas were given equal access to education, paid jobs, land, and protection from gender-based violence.
According to USAID’s report Getting to Zero: Gender and extreme poverty, when women have equal participation and protection in local economies, “the benefits are amplified across families and generations.”
“…relative to men, women spend more of the income they control in ways that benefit their children, improving nutrition, health, and educational opportunities.”
Empowering women matters for everyone.
