Reducing poverty and improving equity
Posted Jan 25, 2018 | Comparative Research Programme on Poverty, University of Bergen, Sarah Bradshaw, Sylvia Chant, Brian Linneker

Poverty is a complex and multifaceted lived experience and women commonly experience it as intersecting privations in assets, time, power, and income. In this poverty brief by the Comparative Research Programme on Poverty at the University of Bergen, Sarah Bradshaw, Sylvia Chant, and Brian Linneker debate the status of knowledge about women's poverty, and its relevance to poverty alleviation programmes. They identify a need for more accurate indicators of the extent and nature of women’s poverty to measure not only monetary privation, but gender inequalities in assets, time and power within households.
