Inform to Reform: Using Comparative Law to Make Change

November 07, 2017 | 14:00 to 15:30 ET, 19:00 to 20:30 GMT

Preston Auditorium, World Bank Headquarters

Researchers at the World Bank uncovered that 90% of economies worldwide have at least one discriminatory law that makes it more difficult for women than for men to work or operate a business. An interview style panel with Q&A will explore how and why the World Bank has been developing a global dataset on laws affecting women’s economic opportunities, as well as how gender equality advocates can use comparative law as a tool in their own work.
