Leveraging Digital Finance for Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment 

For women and girls, the digital revolution represents one of the biggest opportunities and threats to gender equality. In recognition of this critical dichotomy, the UNSG Task Force on Digital Financing for the SDGs has selected gender as one of the main themes of its work. This working paper provides a basis to review the barriers, risks and opportunities related to gender and the accessibility and utilization of digital finance and help identify pathways that could be leveraged for potential impactful investment returns for women.
