Amid development challenges that disproportionately affect women, a legal environment that supports women’s work is more important than ever. Yet, discriminatory laws continue to exacerbate the effects of an already difficult period, and billions of women around the world still do not have the same legal rights as men.

Learn more in the introductory video.


The World Bank Group’ s Women Business and the Law 2022 study covers 190 economies and measures discriminatory laws and regulations in eight areas specific to how women are impacted by the law throughout their life. The study continues to build on evidence of the critical relationship between gender equality and women’s economic participation, finding that good practice legislation is strongly associated with their increased empowerment.

During NORDSCI Anniversary Edition, Women, Business and the Law 2022 presentation will showcase the main findings from the report and discuss what can be done to improve women’s economic opportunities and empower them at work and at home. Additionally, preliminary findings and analysis of pilot data collected on the provision of childcare and implementation of the law will be presented.
