Ingrida Maciūtė: the state of women’s economic opportunities

Did you know that on average, women have just three-fourths of the legal rights afforded to men?

Eight indicators—structured around women’s interactions with the law as they begin, progress through, and end their careers—align with the economic decisions women make at various stages of their lives. The indicators are Mobility, Workplace, Pay, Marriage, Parenthood, Entrepreneurship, Assets, and Pension.

PRIMUS DERLING Associate Ingrida Maciūtė contributed to the World Bank Group’s study Women, Business and the Law 2020. This study analyses laws and regulations affecting women’s economic opportunity in 190 economies and tracks how the law affects women at various stages in their lives, from the basics of transportation to the challenges of starting a job and getting a pension.
