This briefing summarises the evidence on the impact of cash transfers on women and girls, drawn from the full report, Cash transfers: what does the evidence say?

It considers:

  • Whether the evidence shows that cash transfers have differing impacts for women and girls compared to men and boys.
  • Whether cash transfers contribute to women and girls’ empowerment.
  • Whether the recipient of the cash transfer being male or female has any impact on outcomes.
