Event Type: Seminar, Women's Initiative Network of Reed Smith (WINRS)
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.
