Mainstreaming Gender and Targeting Women in Inclusive Insurance: Perspectives and Emerging Lessons A Compendium of Technical Notes and Case Studies
The Rationale for a Focus on Women and Inclusive Insurance: The compendium “Mainstreaming Gender and Targeting Women in Inclusive Insurance: Perspectives and Emerging Lessons” provides a variety of articles and case studies on the state and potential of gender mainstreaming and targeting women in insurance in developing and emerging economies. It considers inclusive insurance as broader than microinsurance so that all underserved women clients in these markets can be included. At its heart, this compendium is based on the knowledge that gender and biological differences between women and men affect their life cycle risks with implications for their needs and preferences for inclusive insurance products and services. The compendium also recognizes that women represent a significant entry point to the family wallet, and hence a market opportunity for insurers due to their traditional role of acting as conduits for their families and communities.
