USAID's 2023 Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment Policy

For societies to thrive, women and girls, men and boys, and gender-diverse individuals must have the agency, social support, and structures to make their own choices and live free from violence and abuse. They must have equal rights and opportunities, as well as equal and safe access to and control over resources. This policy provides the vision to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment around the world—establishing strategic objectives and driving investments in order to achieve these aims.
