Greater women’s economic empowerment and gender equality (WEEGE) can reduce poverty, promote prosperity and improve development outcomes for future generations. This wiki is intended to help USAID staff, implementing partners and development practitioners to understand, address constraints to, and advance women’s economic empowerment and gender equality in their work
