dc.description.abstract Greater access to economic resources and opportunities, and the removal of gender biases in the formal labour markets are fundamental to women’s achievement of economic empowerment. This paper reviews an extensive portion of the current and existing literature on women's empowerment, with a specific focus on women's economic empowerment– analysing factors that promote or deter women’s economic empowerment, specifically: gender norms, women’s time use, paid and unpaid work, education, economic and financial resources, and conflict. en
