Empowered women make their own life choices about family, finances, farming—and much more.
Enhancing women’s empowerment is among the global goals guiding international development efforts toward 2030, and the stated goal of innumerable development projects.

Investing in robust data, methods and rigorous analysis to understand and track women’s empowerment can make the invisible visible and inform policies and decisions in pursuit of women’s empowerment.
