Women and power Overcoming barriers to leadership and influence

  • This policy paper synthesises findings from two years of research on women’s voice and leadership in decisionmaking in developing countries.
  • Research activities included evidence reviews and five empirical case studies on Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Gaza, Kenya and Malawi.
  • We set out to understand the factors that help and hinder women’s access to and substantive influence in decision-making processes in politics and society, and whether women’s leadership advances gender equality and the wellbeing of women more broadly.
