Globally, the gender pay gap persists. In 18 of the G20 countries, women earn 15% less than men.
Less than half of the economies analyzed in the latest World Bank report “Women, Business and the Law” have legislation mandating equalremuneration for work of equal value.
Globally, only 55% of women (aged 15-64) are engaged in the labor market, as opposed to 78% of men.
The legal framework of all G20 countries provides women with the same rights as men to open a bank account at a formal financialinstitution and guarantees women’s equal access to credit.
Nevertheless, despite this framework, an average of 22% of women in G20 countries lack access to formal bank accounts.
Women are underrepresented at all levels of the tech industry; the most substantial difference is at the highest-level positions. Only 21% of top executives in the tech sector are women.
Working women in most OECD countries are less likely than men to be high performers and have awell-rounded skills mix, particularly digital skills.
