What is financial inclusion, why is it an issue for women, and what does it have to do with #genderdata? @Data2X...

Although the number of bank accounts has increased dramatically between 2011 and 2014, the gap between the number of bank accounts owned by men and women has not budged.

Financial inclusion means that everyone has expanded access to reliable and safe financial services. But given the gap in bank account ownership, it’s clear that to achieve financial inclusion for all, women must be targeted. 

In this interview excerpt, Data2X’s Senior Fellow Mayra Buvinic explains why gender data is necessary to achieve financial inclusion.
