Training Manual Economic Empowerment and Gender Budgeting

Training Manual Economic Empowerment and Gender Budgeting For Women Advocates at the Provincial Level in Afghanistan

What are economic rights? Why do they matter for women? What is the relationship between social prosperity and the economic empowerment of women?

It is increasingly recognized that economic development is closely linked to the status of women. When women have the rights, resources, skills and support, they can be powerful forces of economic growth. But there must be an enabling environment in place for women to seize and exercise their rights, and this requires progressive policy, gender equal laws, and political institutions prepared to uphold mechanisms that give women equitable access to economic opportunity.
