Women around the world still face numerous barriers to economic equality and to equal employment opportunities. When regulations and institutions differentiate between women and men, it impacts a woman's incentives or capacity to work or to set up and run a business. The Women, Business and the Law Report measures these laws and provides data on legal and regulatory barriers to women's entrepreneurship and employment in 189 economies, covering: accessing institutions, using property, getting a job, providing incentives to work, going to court, building credit and protecting women from violence. This year's report marks the 5th edition of the report. Learn more here
