How do legal and institutional frameworks shape women's economic opportunities? How do women’s rights compare to those of men? The World Bank and International Finance Corporation (IFC) have sought to quantify this in their research on Women, Business and the Law, with data on legal and regulatory barriers to women’s entrepreneurship and employment in 173 economies, covering seven areas: accessing institutions, using property, getting a job, providing incentives to work, building credit, going to court, and protecting women from violence.
