Women in Asia

For more than 60 years, The Asia Foundation has empowered women and girls across the Asia-Pacific region. Through our Women’s Empowerment Program, we have transformed the lives of thousands of women and girls through evidence-based programs that focus on three key areas: expanding women’s economic opportunities, increasing women’s rights and security, and advancing women’s political participation. The Women’s Empowerment Program also pursues an integrated approach that promotes gender equality across all Foundation programs.
