Women’s Economic Empowerment

For a more equal world, women and girls must be able to choose the paths their lives take. To do that, they need access to the reproductive healthcare that gives them control of their bodies.

When girls can avoid unintended
pregnancies and stay in school, it pays off:
  20% higher earnings   for each additional year of education.

When women are empowered to choose whether and when to have children, their decision-making power within their households increases.

Access to contraception increases women’s entry into the labor force.

Women’s   social, political and
economic participation 
leads to better
health outcomes for families.
