CRTD.A Round Table on Indicators of Women’s Economic Participation

Thu, 03/29/2012

As part of its on-going work on women's economic rights and entitlements, the Collective for Research and Training on Development-Action (CRTD.A) organized a small round table

discussion which will look critically at the mainstream indicators of women's economic participation and empowerment

with a view to analyze the gendered ideologies that shape and determine these indicators and the implication on defining the rights and entitlement of women and the determination of what constitutes "economic participation".

This event was organized within the framework of CRTD.A's regional initiative "Sustainable Economic Opportunities for Women - Phase II" which is part of our "Women's Economic Empowerment Programme", WEEP, an initiative that was launched in 2001 and which includes a grassroots component targeting rural women cooperatives and groups, capacity building in leadership, participation, governance and production skills, research on women's economic participation and local and global advocacy and lobbying.

The event took place on 29th March 2012 from 9:30 until 13:00.
