Using Qualitative Methods to Understand the Local Meaning of Women’s Empowerment in Ethiopia

This blog captures findings of a study that assessed how the strategies and interventions of the UN Joint Programme on accelerating progress towards the economic empowerment of rural women in Ethiopia (UNJP RWEE) Program have contributed to the empowerment of rural women in the Adami Tulu and Yaya Gulele districts of Ethiopia. The UNJP RWEE Program accelerates economic empowerment by enhancing women’s access to both financial and non-financial services. The authors share some of the program’s conclusions about economic empowerment for women and households.
