In this report, we identify three precarious points along an African woman’s journey when her economic prospects can be – and often are – materially and irrevocably damaged.
Key Takeaway: We compiled learnings and suggestions from our women’s focus group and our research to draw out a comprehensive analysis on how women are often sidelined in the economic conversation that eventually hinders their progress in the formal sector. As you read this report, we invite you to examine how you, your family, your organization, or your government contribute to or stay silent in the face of the systemic economic disenfranchisement of women.
