G7 Background Paper: Women’s Economic Empowerment

The Italian G7 Presidency has identified women’s and girls’ economic empowerment as a priority for the G7 in 2017. Building on the agenda of the UN High Level Panel on Women’s Economic Empowerment, the U.S. G7/G20 Advocacy Alliance has recommended three priority investments for G7 countries to uphold their Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) commitments. The Alliance calls on the U.S. government to play a leading role in encouraging the G7 to take these three actions:

  1. Build the talent pipeline.
  2. Dismantle barriers to employment.
  3. Recognize and support the role of migrant care workers.
