World Bank : Online Morning Seminar #97 “Women, Business and the Law 2021”

03/26/2021 | 11:08pm EDT
  • Countries are inching toward greater gender equality, but women around the world continue to face laws and regulations that restrict their economic opportunity, with the COVID-19 pandemic creating new challenges to their health, safety, and economic security, a new World Bank report 'Women, Business and the Law 2021' says. Reforms to remove obstacles to women's economic inclusion have been slow in many regions and uneven within them, according to Women, Business and the Law 2021. On average, women have just three-quarters of the legal rights afforded to men. Women were already at a disadvantage before the pandemic, and government initiatives to buffer some of its effects, while innovative, have been limited in many countries, the report says.

    At this online seminar, Natália Mazoni Silva Martins, Analyst, and Julia Braunmiller, Private Sector Development Specialist, the Women, Business and the Law project, introduced the main points of the report.


    8am-9am, Friday March 26, 2021 (Japan Standard Time)
