Join the AS/COA Women's Hemispheric Network for a breakfast discussion with Nayda Almodóvar-Reteguis, legal analyst at the World Bank. She will be introducing the report Women, Business, and the Law 2018. It's the fifth in a series of biennial reports measuring gender discrimination in legal treatment and examining its economic consequences. Find out in how many countries women are barred from certain jobs simply because they are women, where there are no laws on sexual harassment in employment, and where husbands can get their wives fired from work.

About Women, Business, and the Law 2018

Women, Business and the Law measures how laws, regulation, and institutions differentiate between women and men in ways that may affect women's incentives or capacity to work or to set up and run a business. It provides data on legal and regulatory barriers to women's entrepreneurship and employment in 189 economies, covering seven areas: accessing institutions, using property, getting a job, providing incentives to work, going to court, building credit, and protecting women from violence
