Enhancing women’s agency: cross-cutting lessons from experimental and quasi-experimental studies in low- and middle-income countries

J-PAL’s Evidence Review, “Enhancing Women’s Agency: Cross-Cutting Lessons From Experimental and Quasi-Experimental Studies in Low- and Middle-Income Countries,” highlights key research findings on evidence that cuts across multiple domains of women’s agency and identifies research questions that remain to be answered.
