Women, Business and the Law 2021 (

Despite progress, discriminatory laws across the world continue to threaten not only women’s fundamental human rights, but also their economic security. Barriers to employment and entrepreneurship at every stage of life limit equality of opportunity, failing to adequately support working women. Women face these challenges in even the most developed economies. Worldwide they have, on average, just three-quarters of the rights of men. Governments must take urgent action to close this gap or risk worsening the effects of the pandemic. By presenting a data set and an index highlighting opportunities for reform, Women, Business and the Law 2021 is an important tool in the pursuit of women’s economic empowerment. The seventh in a series, this study examines progress toward gender equality by measuring the laws and regulations that restrict women’s economic inclusion in 190 economies. It also presents compelling findings on gender-sensitive government responses to COVID-19, as well as pilot research on both childcare and enhancing women’s access to justice (box 1.1).
