Can economic rights alone bring radical change for women? In this podcast we go to the Middle East and north Africa to discover that real economic empowerment is about so much more than just jobs. It’s about dignity, power and daring to imagine. On a trip across the region we hear from Morocco, Egypt, Lebanon, Tunisia and Jordan. From sextortion to discriminatory laws, we learn about what’s holding women back and we discover how sustainable economic empowerment is tightly interwoven with gender justice. Only by confronting current power structures and only by daring to re-imagine our economy can women enjoy genuine economic empowerment.
