This systematic review examined the question: "what is the evidence of the impact on family well-being of giving economic resources to women relative to the impact of giving them to men?" This review is of interest to policy-makers and funders in developed and developing countries, given the recent growth in the number of poverty alleviation transfer programs that implicitly or explicitly designate women as transfer recipients.
