Leveling The Global Playing Field For Women

In mid-November, the World Bank Group released a database of laws that entail differential treatment of women and men in business called the Gender Law Library.

The Doing Business Gender Law Library is a collection of national legal provisions impacting women’s economic status in 181 economies. The database facilitates comparative analysis of legislation, serves as a resource for research, and contributes to reforms that can enhance women’s full economic participation.

Why is this important?

Because better economic opportunities for women tend to lead to higher incomes, higher literacy, and better health.

And the better picture we paint of the legal framework shaping a woman’s ability to do business, the greater the positive economic impact women will have in our world.
