Social enterprise is a concept of business that takes social good as an equal priority to profit-making and seeks to bring about a ‘fairer economy’. So it is fitting to ask to what extent social enterprise can enable a fairer economy for women and girls’ empowerment. Social enterprise is not a panacea and its application to the issue of gender equality should not be seen in isolation from other measures. However there are some promising signs that social enterprise can make a meaningful contribution.

The UN’s Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5 is to ‘achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls’. That said, social enterprise is contributing to women’s empowerment in many diverse ways. These can be grouped into five overlapping categories:

  1. Social enterprise as a tool for women’s empowerment organisations;
  2. The impact of individual social enterprises on their beneficiaries;
  3. The impact on women who become social entrepreneurs;
  4. The impact of the social enterprise sector as an employer;
  5. The relation between social enterprise and women’s leadership;
