What About the Gender Gap?

The U.S. has made a commitment to promote gender equity in Africa through a few initiatives, including programs that advance women's participation in peace building and conflict resolution, expand education, promote the health of women and families, expand leadership opportunities for women and girls and address gender-based violence. It also will provide business development assistance to women entrepreneurs in East, Southern and West Africa through the Department of State.
