Women’s Economic Empowerment: building evidence for better investments

Hi everyone,


I am excited to share that Publish What You Fund has just launched the result of its two-year research for the “Women’s Economic Empowerment: building evidence for better investments” project. This research uses OECD CRS data, among other sources, to track relevant funding.


View our new report series here



This cutting-edge research outlines the state of international and national funding for women’s economic empowerment, women’s financial inclusion and women’s empowerment collectives in Kenya, Nigeria, and Bangladesh. Our reports also offer insights into international funding trends, including top funders, the types of projects being funded, and the groups of women the funding is intended to support. The ‘Tracking International Funding to Women’s Economic Empowerment’ report also analyses funding that addresses women’s unpaid care work, and Covid-19 funding. 


What’s next? 

We would like to invite you to a webinar we will be hosting with the Center for Global Development on August 2nd, “Where is the money for women’s economic empowerment?” The webinar will be moderated by Megan O’Donnell and includes a panel of speakers from ICRW Africa, SIDA, the African Development Bank and ActionAid Bangladesh. Sign up here.


We have just uploaded a recording of our July 19th presentation for the Global Alliance for Care on our research about international funding for women and girls’ unpaid care work. We hope you enjoy the findings and discussion with expert panelists from the Alliance and UN Women.


Engage in the discussion!

We look forward to your thoughts on the research. We would also greatly appreciate it if you could share the reports with your colleagues and via Twitter and LinkedIn, where you can also engage in the discussion.


Over the next couple of months, we will also be engaging in advocacy efforts on both the country and global level. If you would like to engage please get in touch with [email protected]   


As always, we appreciate your support. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to jump on a call to discuss.


Best wishes,




Jamie Holton
Senior Project Officer
