A CDC-produced podcast on the barriers to women's economic empowerment and how they can be overcome
Although progress is being made in supporting women's economic empowerment, there is still a great deal of work to be done.
Initiatives like the United Nations panel, International Women's Day and improving access to financial services have made an impact but where can improvements be made?
In this podcast we explore some of the barriers standing in the way of closing the gender gap and look at how they can be overcome. We speak to journalist Elizabeth Matsangou, CDC's Arpita Raksit and Yvonne Katamba, a woman in Uganda who successfully set up her own business with financial support from a bank.
