Gender and Value Chain

We have developed and used a quasi-experimental design and index to measure women's intra-household bargaining position. We hope this tool can capture women's perceived bargaining position and by doing so over come the pitfalls of measuring bargaining power based on indicators. The tool can be further developed and used to measure the bargaining position of any household member in relation to other household members. The index can also be developed further into a bargaining model equation that helps to calculate the position of any household member in household decision making process.

Summary of uses: • Capturing women’s (or any household members) perceived bargaining position
