Micro-saving: A factor in reducing gender inequalities?

Around the world, women carry out 66% of work, produce 50% of food and yet only receive 10% of income [1]. This chronic economic vulnerability is to a large extent caused by the unequal distribution of power, resources and responsibilities to the benefit of men. Economically strengthening women contributes to their social empowerment, but it is not sufficient for women’s rights to be fully respected. A general mobilization of society is required. This especially involves convincing men that the gain in power for one does not mean a loss for the other.
