Supporting Women Is Smart Global Economics

InvestInWomenWorldwideWEGG

Here’s a thoughtful piece written by Jennifer Yip (search by her name) who is a consultant for the World Bank Group’s Doing Business team.  Opening passage:

At an age when mothers admonish their children to finish their brussels sprouts, my mother issued warnings about the importance of getting a PhD if I wanted to gain the respect of my future husband. Those warnings were followed by the oft-repeated reminder that I should “marry well, so you don’t have to work if you don’t want to.”

Twenty years and a couple of degrees later I’ve often wondered how those two pieces of advice go together. What is the point of getting an advanced degree if I eventually decide not to work?

The smart economics of educated women.
