World Bank Releases Women, Business and the Law Report

by | Aug 6, 2018

Women, Business and the Law measures how laws, regulations and institutions differentiate between women and men in ways that may affect women’s incentives or capacity to work or to set up and run a business. It provides data on legal and regulatory barriers to women’s entrepreneurship and employment in 189 economies, covering seven areas: 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 global Women, Business and the Law report series. For more information about the Women, Business and the Law, please visit wbl.worldbank.org.
