Women, Business and the Law 2016

Women, Business and the Law measures how laws, regulations and institutions differentiate between women and men in ways that may affect women’s incentives or capacity to work or to set up and run a business. It provides data on legal and regulatory barriers to women’s entrepreneurship and employment in 173 economies, covering seven areas: accessing institutions, using property, getting a job, providing incentives to work, building credit, going to court and protecting women from violence.

This year’s report marks the 4th edition of the global Women, Business and the Law report series. For more information, please visit http://wbl.worldbank.org
