Trade and gender: A framework of analysis

Published 27 April 2021

This paper proposes a framework analyzing the impacts of trade and trade policies on women that policy makers can use in order to ensure that trade and trade policies in their country support women’s economic empowerment.

Economies around the world are stepping up efforts towards trade policy that best serves their people. The OECD's new study focuses on opportunities for governments to consider trade and gender, particularly how trade policy can be optimized to expand economic empowerment for women. The paper illuminates the benefits and losses that women experience from trade policy. The study also recommends the mapping of the relationship between their citizens’ economic participation and their own trade and economic policies, and policies that can improve and ensure women's greater involvement in the economy.
