Women's autonomy is fundamental in ensuring that they can exercise human rights under conditions of full equality. Control over their own bodies (physical autonomy), income generation and ownership of their personal financial resources (economic autonomy), and full participation in decisions that affect their lives, individually and as a group (decision-making autonomy), are three pillars for building greater gender equality in the region.
