In the current economic climate, forward movements in market access and trade capacity building for developing countries can seem unlikely. Women Thrive Worldwide is a non-profit organization focused on making US policies foster economic opportunity for women living in poverty. In this unique trade environment, Women Thrive advises policymakers in the US on how preferences help women in developing countries and their economies as a whole, while having positive impacts on the US economy. Increased local, regional and global trade can play a pivotal role in providing the economic sustainability women need to support themselves, their families and their national economies. Women have a disproportionately high risk of being poor and yet, in many cultures, they are responsible for providing for the well-being of their families. This makes investing in women an effective strategy for reducing global poverty.
