This issue of IPC's journal Poverty in Focus presents a dozen articles summarising some of the most important recent research results and commentaries on the links between gender and poverty.

Reducing gender inequality promises significant returns; empowering women by improving their living conditions and enabling them to actively participate in the social and economic life of a country may well be the key for long-term sustainable development.   This issue is available online.
