The World Bank released the Women Business and the Law 2022 report which evaluates the laws and regulations that affect women’s economic opportunity in 190 economies. The study covers eight areas that impact women’s economic participation: workplace, pay, pensions, marriage, parenthood, mobility, entrepreneurship and assets.
As we entered the third year of the pandemic, we know that women have been negatively affected by the crisis. The COVID - 19 not only threatened the health, but also contributed to the deterioration of the situation with regards to domestic violence. Current document reveals the discriminatory laws that present barriers to women’s economic participation and therefore it suggests to refine them.
Women Business and the Law is a series of reports that are based on annual studies. The particular feature of the new report is that it includes preliminary findings and analysis of pilot data collected on the provision of childcare and the implementation of the law.
