GAAP Conceptual Framework

The following is the GAAP conceptual framework was developed to understand the gendered pathways through which asset accumulation occurs, including attention to not only men's and women's assets but also those they jointlt control and own. Unlike previous frameworks, this model depicts the gendered dimensions of each component of the pathway in recognition of the evidence that men and women not only control, own, or dispose of assets in different ways, but also access, control, and own different kinds of assets.
