Hosted with Hand in Hand International
Gender norms restrict the lives of women and girls across the world. Drawing on new research and key learnings from micro-enterprise programmes in Kenya, Tanzania and Afghanistan, we demonstrated how practical interventions that challenge accepted attitudes can empower women to earn and control their own incomes and have their say in and outside the home.
At this hybrid interactive session we found out why tackling gender norms is worthwhile and the practical interventions needed to empower women and support women’s micro-enterprises.
