If women are not empowered, the economy loses
It has been proven time and again that when more women enter the workforce, economies grow faster. Studies conducted in various nations have proven that there is a direct correlation between greater gender diversity and higher GDPs.
Women and Economy
- Economic resources and decision-making power-By empowering women, we increase their right to economic resources, as well as their decision-making powers. This, in turn, benefits their households and their communities.
- Human Capital- Women begin investing more in their children’s education, the quality of human capital improves, and we as a nation reap the benefits of economic prosperity.
- Poverty Eradication- When women are empowered, the battle to eradicate poverty is more fruitful.
