Women and Poverty in Georgia
Poverty is a multifaceted phenomenon that interlinks all sectors of society, including the labour market, families, social security systems and political life. Poverty affects men and women in different ways. This brief reviews the causes and differential experiences of women’s and men’s poverty in Georgia.
This brief was developed by UN Women Georgia Country Office in the framework of the UN Women projects “Women’s Economic Empowerment in the South Caucasus” funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the Austrian Development Cooperation (ADC) and “Good Governance for Gender Equality in Georgia” supported by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
