This book draws on 27 IFPRI research studies on household decision making and intrahousehold allocation of resources, organized by the following themes: power and resources within the household; agriculture and natural resources; health and nutrition; social capital, legal institutions, and property rights; and policies and interventions. Its aim is to identify and analyze the causes and consequences of gender inequalities in access to resources in order to implement policies that will increase women's bargaining power.
