Women, Business and Law

A new web-based data system from the World Bank and a report, “Removing Barriers to Economic Inclusion” provides valuable legal information on laws affecting businesses. In aquaculture and fisheries, many studies have found that access to investment credit, capital and rights over resources, land and other assets are not equal for women and men in most countries. Thus, the information in these sources are valuable background material for research and activism.
Women, Business and the Law┬ápresents indicators based on laws and regulations affecting women’s prospects as entrepreneurs and employees, in part drawing on laws contained in the Gender Law Library. Both resources can inform research and policy discussions on how to improve women’s economic opportunities and outcomes.”
