by | May 14, 2014

On 14 May at 5:15pm EDT, the World Bank will be launching a ground-breaking report, shining a spotlight on the value of enabling women and girls to fulfil their potential, and of amplifying their voices. The report highlights gaps and constraints in existing mechanisms, and reviews promising new policies and interventions.
