The freedom to pursue the goals that correspond with our own values is important for all people. An increase in this freedom can be defined as empowerment. However, in many places, this freedom is at least partially denied to women. This has a negative influence on the food security of the families, as well as health, productivity, efficiency and economic growth. In light of the central role of agriculture in reducing hunger and poverty, particularly in the so-called developing countries, analysing the determinants of the empowerment of women is interesting, particularly in agriculture. Using the Women's Empowerment in Agriculture Index (WEAI), precisely this aspect is investigated, based on a representative sample from Bangladesh. It can be shown that in particular, the opportunity for women to earn a living has a significantly positive influence.
