Document Details:

Women, Business and the Law 2024 is the tenth in a series of annual studies measuring the enabling environment for women’s economic opportunity in 190 economies.

Women, Business and the Law updates its index of eight indicators, structured around women’s interactions with the law as they begin, progress through, and end their careers: Mobility, Workplace, Pay, Marriage, Parenthood, Entrepreneurship, Assets, and Pension.

Women, Business and the Law 2024 introduces a new framework for measuring the implementation gap across three pillars:

  • legal frameworks, measuring laws; 
  • supportive frameworks, measuring policy mechanisms to implement laws; 
  • expert opinions, shedding light on experts’ perception of women’s outcomes.

It also introduces two new indicators: Safety, measuring frameworks addressing violence against women, and Childcare, measuring frameworks for the availability, affordability and quality of childcare.
