Paul Cahill, David Stafford and Irene Nic Chárthaigh contributed to the World Bank Group’s Women, Business and the Law 2021 report.
Women, Business and the Law 2021 is the seventh in a series of annual studies measuring the laws and regulations that affect women’s economic opportunity in 190 economies. The report informs research and policy discussions about the state of women’s economic empowerment by identifying barriers to women’s economic participation and encouraging reform of discriminatory laws. This year, the study also includes important findings on government responses to the COVID-19 crisis and pilot research related to childcare and women’s access to justice.
