Asset ownership and egalitarian decision making among couples: Some evidence from Ghana

Given the importance of decision-making in empowering women, forms of decision-making and their relative importance for women’s empowerment deserve attention. This paper explores the determinants of couples’ egalitarian decision-making, i.e. decision-making which is characterised by mutual consultation. The major aim is to identify the critical enabling or constraining social, economic and institutional factors affecting women’s asset ownership in order to help policy makers and others to improve women’s claims to productive assets.
