Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment

Language: English | Georgian
Gender equality and female empowerment are core development objectives, fundamental to the fulfillment of human rights and key to effective and sustainable development outcomes.  In Georgia, one of USAID’s goals is to improve the lives of Georgian citizens, by advancing equality between women and men, and empowering women and girls to participate fully in and benefit from the development of Georgian society. USAID works with a range of institutions to empower women entrepreneurs, enhance women’s educational attainment, increase the number of women in leadership positions in government at national, regional, and local levels; support the role of women as peacemakers; and increase the participation of women in political parties and the legislature.  In doing so, the Mission implements and advances the goals of USAID’s Gender Equality and Female Empowerment policy
