Dear Deeply Readers,

Welcome to the archives of News Deeply’s Women & Girls Hub. While we paused regular publication of the site on January 22, 2018, and transitioned our coverage to Women’s Advancement Deeply, we are happy to serve as an ongoing public resource on the Arctic. We hope you’ll enjoy the reporting and analysis that was produced by our dedicated community of editors contributors.

We continue to produce events and special projects while we explore where the on-site journalism goes next. If you’d like to reach us with feedback or ideas for collaboration you can do so at

Economic Independence

How women are gaining independence by earning and controlling their own money.

When women are in charge of their finances, their families, communities and even whole countries feel the benefits. From illegally brewing beer in refugee camps to setting up lending cooperatives to support each other through drought, we meet the women who are innovating and experimenting in the quest for financial independence, and look at the challenges they have to overcome on the way.
