Economic Justice: Stats and Facts

Gender inequality in access to and recognition of work

Women participate in labor markets at a much lower rate that men do. When they do, they get paid less than men for the same work.

Drivers of economic exploitation

The economic condition of women and the extent to which women are able to realize their economic potential are also shaped by underlying economic systems and public policies.

Restricting women’s economic potential and under-investing in women slows economic growth and poverty reduction, and prevents more equitable, sustainable models for economic development.

Evidence: Levers for change

There is an emerging body of evidence for levers to promote women’s economic empowerment.
