Women's Economical Emancipation

Women’s economic emancipation is one of the pillars of SWV. Extensive research evidences that there is a massive gender gap in political participation and employment opportunities between men and women. Therefore, the truest way to push women forward to economic emancipation is to economically empower them.

Studies conducted globally show that women’s economic empowerment is a 

prerequisite for alleviating worldwide poverty and pursuing sustainable development goals. Simultaneously, women’s economic empowerment contributes to achieving women’s legal rights. Once being economically independent, women are more vocal about their rights and opportunities.

SWV embraces that women’s economic emancipation in Armenia cannot be realized overnight. Projects aimed at economic empowerment of women should be complemented with public campaigns intended to increase overall society’s knowledge in gender studies and creating gender-sensitive educational system.
