This paper responds to recent focus in the development sector on creating employment for women. It argues that sustaining women's economic empowerment depends on employment being decent work, with safeguards, that is accessible to many women. Approaches combine integrated interventions to increase participation in markets with broader investments for social infrastructure, supportive norms and addressing structural barriers for women such as heavy and unequal care work and gender based violence.
