Advancing Women in Asia
March 7, 2012
The phrase “gender equality as smart economics” has become the mantra of such women leaders as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and UN Women Executive Director Michelle Bachelet. While some of Asia’s economies are booming, this does not always lead to greater opportunities for women. In fact, many women across Asia still lack access to basic education, face significant challenges in earning an income or starting a business, are vulnerable to human trafficking, and struggle to participate in policy decisions that drastically affect their families. Watch this slideshow to learn how The Asia Foundation is working to help women in Asia fight these obstacles.
