In this public event, Jeni Klugman, Senior Adviser, The World Bank Group and Fellow, Kennedy School, Harvard University, presented the main findings of Voice and Agency: empowering women and girls for shared prosperity - a major new report by the World Bank that shines a spotlight on the value of empowerment, the patterns of constraints that limit their realization, and the associated costs, not only to individual women but to their families, communities, and societies. It highlights promising policies and interventions, and it identifies priority areas where further research and more and better data and evidence are needed.

A great panel was asembled to discuss the report, consisting of: Elizabeth Broderick, Sex Discrimination Commissioner, Australian Human Rights Commission; Dame Carol Kidu, former Papua New Guinea Member of Parliament, Minister for Community Development and advocate for women’s rights; and Ewen McDonald, Deputy Secretary, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The event was chaired by Fiona Jenkins, Convenor of the ANU Gender Institute.
