Finance and Development, December 2016

This paper highlights that one of the most dramatic developments in the 20th century was the entry of women into economic and political spheres previously occupied almost exclusively by men. Although women are making progress in eliminating gender disparities, they still lag men in the workplace and in the halls of government. These gaps are found throughout the world, but are particularly pronounced in developing economies. So far, the greatest success has been in reducing education and health disparities and the least in increasing women’s economic and political influence.

IMF Managing Director Horst Köhler traveled to Ethiopia on July 5 to discuss the challenges facing the drought-stricken country and to emphasize the IMF’s strong commitment to support the country’s long-term vision for economic growth and poverty reduction. In subsequent stops on the week-long trip, Köhler visited Kenya, Madagascar, and Mozambique, where he attended the African Union Heads of State meeting in Maputo.
