Inequalities related to water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) persist due to entrenched gender norms, including expectations around labour, caregiving, and responsibilities relating to hygiene and sanitation. At the same time, there is a lack of consensus on how to measure empowerment in the WASH sector, as most gender-sensitive WASH indicators do not focus specifically on empowerment. To meet the need for metrics in this space, we are developing the women’s empowerment in WASH metric (WE WASH). This metric can be used to diagnose areas of disempowerment in WASH, measure changes over time, and understand the relationships between women’s empowerment and WASH-related outcomes. Thus, the metric is applicable both for research studies as well as program-based monitoring and evaluation systems. This session will provide participants an orientation to the metric and prepare them to apply it in their own work.
