Harvard Business School: "Female Empowerment: Impact of a Commitment Savings Product in the Philippines," by Nava Ashraf, Dean Karlan, and Wesley Yin (No. 09-100, March 2009, .pdf format, 27p.).

Abstract:

Female "empowerment" has increasingly become a policy goal, both as an end to itself and as a means to achieving other development goals. Microfinance in particular has often been argued, but not without controversy, to be a tool for empowering women. Here, using a randomized controlled trial, we examine whether access to and marketing of an individually-held commitment savings product leads to an increase in female decision-making power within the household. We find positive impacts, particularly for women who have below median decision-making power in the baseline, and we find this leads to a shift towards female-oriented durables goods purchased in the household.
