Supporting Pathways of Women's Empowerment: A Brief Guide for International Development Organisations
MetadataShow full item record
Most international development organisations include women's empowerment and gender equality as a key objective. But what empowerment means and how best to support it remains a matter of debate. This brief by Rosalind Eyben informs that debate with empirical evidence from the five-year international research programme, Pathways. Pathways researchers from West Africa, South Asia, the Middle East, Latin America and the UK used quantitative surveys, ethnographic fieldwork, participatory action research, life histories, storytelling and film-making to discover how empowerment happens.
