This research project focuses on the factors that empower women in Egyptian households. It will examine the decision making aspects of women inside their households. Given the connection between poverty and women’s empowerment, the authors will also analyze the impact of women’s decision making power on the probability of being poor as a female headed household. The policy brief will present some policy recommendations for Egyptian policy makers to improve conditions of women and reduce their poverty.
