DEC Lecture Series: Gender Inequality in India
MC 13-121, World Bank Headquarters, Washington DC
Gender Inequality in India
About this Lecture
This talk will provide an overview of how well economic factors can explain patterns of gender inequality in the world, as well as the role of cultural norms in perpetuating gender gaps. I will then focus in on India and the ways in which its gender inequality is particularly severe. One such way is the pronounced favoritism towards sons in India. I will discuss implications of son preference and some potential solutions aimed at expanding opportunities for women and girls.
