Women's Economic Empowerment Strategy
In this document the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation outlines its strategy and motivation for supporting a focused agenda on women's economic empowerment.
- Influential labor statistics are neither accurate nor comprehensive in reporting women's work.
- Economic policies frequently ignore women's work and employ macroeconomic models that ignore gender differences.
- A combination of incomplete data on work and productivity and limited research on the gender dynamics of economic activity produces a large blind spot when it comes to making policy.
