Women, Business and the Law 2018 Report Launch

March 29, 2018 | 12:30 to 13:30 ET, 16:30 to 17:30 GMT

Find out in how many countries women are barred from certain jobs simply because they are women, where there are no laws on sexual harassment in employment, and where husbands can get their wives fired from work. Women, Business and the Law 2018 is the fifth in a series of biennial reports measuring gender discrimination in legal treatment, and examining its economic consequences. This session will discuss the main findings from the Women, Business and the Law 2018 report.
