How could tough regimes help women achieve this goal of tapping opportunities with male dominated attitudes and policies? What is the role of the World Bank in changing this scenario?

Hi, Lalin, and thanks very much for your question. The issue of empowering women and closing gender gaps is a priority in all World Bank projects, research, and other activities. I'll share your question with Cecile Fruman, who is our World Bank moderator at the Friday event.
