The bipartisan Women's Entrepreneurship and Economic Empowerment Act of 2018 will be taken up by Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday, November 28, 2018.

This important bill boosts women's economic empowerment by creating policy to reduce gender inequalities and remove legal and social barriers to women's economic empowerment. CARE Action advocates have been critical to our success seeing this bill through in Congress to be signed into law.
