What measures can accelerate progress for women’s economic empowerment? And can trade be a game changer? Investing in women’s economic empowerment (WEE) is crucial to achieve gender equality, poverty reduction and in response and recovery of COVID-19. Women contribute enormously to economies: in businesses, on farms, as entrepreneurs or employees, or by doing unpaid work at home. Realizing women’s potential is a universal mission but some of the barriers holding women back are also universal.
