The World Bank Group report series Women, Business, and the Law measures legal and regulatory barriers to female employment and entrepreneurship in seven key areas of economic opportunity. For the fourth edition of this report, data from 173 economies was collected to show how local laws, regulations, and institutions have contributed to gender-based inequalities and employment imbalances.

Speakers from the Wilson Center, World Bank Group, USAID, and McKinsey & Company discussed how to reach legal gender equality and how such advancements will impact women in business and in the home.
