    Substantial progress toward gender equality and women’s empowerment has occurred over the past four decades, but key gaps, both in opportunity and capability, persist between males and females in all countries. This project focuses on generating high-quality, high-impact economic research on a set of core issues in gender and development. Parallel efforts are focused on making sure that key results are exchanged with UNU-WIDER’s key audiences, including in particular key policy–makers in developing countries, concerned with formulating and implementing effective policies targeted towards achieving gender equity in a meaningful manner.
