Economic empowerment aims to raise the capacity of women and men to participate in, contribute to and benefit from growth processes in ways which recognise the value of their contributions, respect their dignity and make it possible to negotiate a fairer distribution of the benefits of growth.1 Economic empowerment of women increases their access to economic resources and opportunities. This access is often hindered by discrimination and persistent gender inequalities. Women’s economic participation and empowerment bring direct benefits to women but also have a strong impact on poverty and growth, and are essential for achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
