Webinar 11 (August 12, 2020) - Using Women, Business and the Law Data for Research

  • Registration Ends: Aug 12th, 2020
From the basics of freedom of movement to the challenges of working, parenting, and retiring, this series on Women, Business and the Law highlights how in many countries, the law restricts women’s economic opportunities and in turn hinders economic growth. This session will offer insight into how the Women, Business and the Law data can be used for academic research on gender equality. It will include a discussion of the recently published Gendered Laws, which examines and analyzes 50 years of data on women’s rights. This expansion of the dataset allows for extensive research on the pace of reform in the areas measured, as well as an ability to track trends and causes of change. Join one of the paper’s authors, Marie Hyland, as she shares more about her research methods and findings.
