Women, Business and the Law: Safeguarding Women’s Economic Opportunity in Times of Crisis

Follow the event on Twitter #WomenBizLaw

No economy can grow to its full potential unless both women and men participate fully. As half the world’s population, women have an equal role in driving economic growth. Yet despite recent progress, women around the globe continue to face laws and regulations that restrict their economic opportunity. The COVID-19 pandemic has created new challenges to their health, safety, and economic security. 

The World Bank has stepped up its support to countries as they tackle the unprecedented threats posed by the COVID-19 crisis and is paying special attention to the pandemic's different impact on men and women. By using the findings of the new Women, Business and the Law 2021 study, this event will discuss what can be done to improve women’s economic opportunities and empower them in the world of work and at home, especially in the context of the global pandemic.
