An important achievement in recent years has been the recognition by governments that there is a gender dimension to poverty. Men and women experience poverty differently, become poor through different processes and face different vulnerabilities and risks. Women’s poverty is compounded by gender disparities in productive resources, infrastructure and labor markets, all of which create barriers to viable economic participation. Overcoming these barriers is essential for moving women out of poverty and fostering broad-based sustainable growth.
