Empowerment of women and girls: conceptual model and measurement guidance
‘Women’s empowerment happens when individuals and organised groups are able to imagine their world differently and to realise that vision by changing the relations of power that have kept them in poverty, restricted their voice and deprived them of their autonomy’ (Rosalind Eyben, 2011, in White Paper 2016).
In close partnership, a conceptual model on empowerment of women and girls was developed. This model was presented in a White Paper: Conceptual model of women and girls’ empowerment. This is followed by a Methods Note providing guidance on how to measure empowerment of women and girls.
