The evidence presented shows that societies that discriminate by gender pay a high price in terms of their ability to develop and to reduce poverty. To promote gender equality, the report proposes a 3-part strategy emphasizing institutional reforms, based on
- a foundation of equal rights for women and men
- policies for sustained economic development
- active measures to redress persistent gender disparities
Paper presents new data and analyses and reviews an extensive development literature, and is intended as a tool for policy makers, development specialists, and members of civil society who are promoting, designing, and implementing development strategies.
