Historically, women around the world have had less opportunity than men in education, employment, and health care, and less political representation.

Although the gender gap is shrinking, progress remains uneven across many regions of the world. This book reviews a range of approaches to help whittle away at the barriers that prevent girls and women from achieving their full economic potential.

There are still many lessons to be learned in implementing the appropriate government policies and fiscal measures to continue promotion of women’s development issues and gender equality.
