Summary: The (World Development Report) WDR 2012 focuses on three dimensions of gender equality: endowment, economic opportunity and agency. It argues that outcomes for women can improve through accumulation of endowments; use of such endowments to take up economic opportunities and generate income; and application of endowments to take action or agency. In applying the framework operationally, these three dimensions of gender equality can be seen as both entry points to addressing gender issues and outcomes of successful delivery of services generated. This companion to the WDR 2012 gender equality and development is intended to support the operationalization and delivery of World Bank Group (WBG) commitments on gender, while building on the insights of the WDR 2012 and practical experience from the Sustainable Development Network (SDN). The WDR 2012 tends to focus on women's status for the most part, based on the fact that women tend to fare worse than men along a range of dimensions in most countries.
