This briefing summarizes the findings on the impacts of cash transfers on women and girls. These are drawn from a rigorous review of the evidence looking at the impacts of cash transfers across six outcome areas. The review covered literature spanning 15 years (2000–2015). It is distinct from other cash transfer reviews in terms of the methods used, the breadth of the evidence synthesised, and the focus on programme design and implementation features.
