Gender Equality as Smart Economics

40 ratings | 16638 views
In recent years there have been significant gains in women's health and education, but gains in women's economic opportunities have been modest at best. This is not only unfair, but also inefficient, since increased women's labor force participation and earnings are associated with reduced poverty and faster growth. Women stand to benefit from their economic empowerment, but so do men, children and society as a whole. In sum, in addition to its intrinsic development value, there is a strong business case for expanding women's economic opportunities: it is smart economics. Renewing attention to women's economic empowerment and increasing investments in women are ways to promote economic development and reduce poverty.
