MDF has created a practical framework that measures and monitors women’s access and agency, both of which are key indicators of WEE. Access is defined as a women’s ability to access economic resources and information, while Agency is the ability to make decisions and act on economic opportunities. Within the report six dimensions of WEE are examined:

  • influence on social norms
  • economic advancement
  • decision-making
  • functions and workloads
  • access to opportunities
  • access to assets and services
