Background:

CGD, in collaboration with Data2X, IDRC and the World Bank Africa Gender Innovation Lab organized a panel discussion on possible measures and issues, drawing on evidence from the ExxonMobil Foundation-funded report Women’s Economic Empowerment: A Roadmap and its update, “Revisiting What Works.” Read the overview here. Since then, new research has been conducted which raises alternative perspectives on these measures.

The event, co-sponsored by CGD, Data2X and IDRC, marked 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.
