Abstract The study looks at the factors that influence women's empowerment in terms of household decision-making in Pakistan's Sindh province. One of the 17 global goals included in the United Nations' 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is the Sustainable Development Goal 5 (SDG 5). The achievement of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls are the specific goals of SDG 5. The objective is to put an end to all forms of gender-based violence and discrimination, to outlaw harmful customs like child marriage and female genital mutilation, to guarantee equal access to positions of leadership and decision-making, and to advance women's full and effective participation in all aspects of society. The term "women's empowerment" simply refers to giving women the means to achieve social and financial independence. Economic growth is boosted by women's empowerment, which results from investments in their health and education. Rural areas are home to the majority of the population's females. By improving the health and education of future generations, educated and empowered women in these places can either directly or indirectly contribute to economic prosperity. This study shows that having a job, a source of income, a higher education, a mother who has a higher degree, owning property in her name, having more mobility, and feeling empowered increases women's domestic earning capacity. There are specific policy alternatives provided for developing economies.
