Her Money, Her Voice: How Women’s Economic Empowerment Energizes Political Participation

Host Organization: Global WA


Women’s economic empowerment is the process of achieving women’s equal access to economic resources, and the ability to control those resources over other areas of their lives. Its achievement is now a global policy priority in light of its contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Women’s economic empowerment includes women’s ability to participate equally in existing markets as well as an increased voice, agency and meaningful participation in economic and political decision-making at all levels from the household to international institutions.

Join GlobalWA members Oxfam America, Fair Trade USA and CARE as they share their expertise on how women’s economic empowerment leads to increased political freedoms and access to improved rights.
