Example text

Across all countries and cultures, there are differences between men’s and women’s ability to make these choices, usually to women’s disadvantage. These gendered differences matter for women’s well-being but also for a whole set of outcomes for their families and for society in general. Women’s agency influences their ability to build their human capital and take up economic opportunities. In Bangladesh, women with greater control over health care and household purchases have higher nutritional status.

A growing body of research also suggests that attitudes about women in the family and the workplace are transmitted across generations. 48 Young men and young women also tend to study in very different fields—with women favoring education and the humanities, while men favor engineering, agriculture, and sciences—in ways that are unrelated to abilities (chapter 3) yet repeat themselves over generations and do not go away as incomes rise. 50 The pattern is similar in Cambodia and Mexico. 52 Norms may be learned in the household, but they are often reinforced by market signals and institutions, which are gender biased in many aspects.

In Mexico, the daughters (but not the sons) of women with more control over household decisions work fewer hours on household tasks. Women’s collective agency can be transformative for society. It can shape the institutions, markets, and social norms that limit their individual agency and opportunities. Empowering women as political and social actors can change policy choices and make institutions more representative of a range of voices. 22 Women’s greater public voice not only benefits women and children but can also benefit men.
