Voice and Agency - Empowering Women and Girls for Shared Prosperity 

There has been unprecedented progress in important aspects of the lives of girls and women over recent decades. Yet even where gender gaps are narrowed, systematic differences in outcomes often persist, including widespread gender-based-vio- lence and lack of voice. These deprivations and constraints sometimes reflect persistent violations of the most basic human rights. And in many instances, constraints are magnified and multiplied by poverty and lack of education.


Voice and Agency: Empowering women and girls for shared prosperity is a major new report by the World Bank that shines a spotlight on the value of voice and agency, the patterns of constraints that limit their realization, and the associated costs, not only to individual women but to their families, communities, and societies. It highlights promising policies and interventions, and it identifies priority areas where further research and more and better data and evidence are needed. Underlining that agency has both intrinsic and instrumental, concrete value, this report puts advancing women's voice and agency squarely on the international development agenda.
