WITA Webinar: Taking Meaningful Action to Address Barriers to Trade for Women

03/26/2021 at 9:00 AM (US/Eastern)
WITA Webinar WITA Online Event

As a global average, women have only 75% of the legal rights accorded to men, and 40% of countries have laws constraining women’s participation in the labor force. Gender-biased laws and procurement processes can prevent women from setting up a business or owning land and assets. Because of these and other obstacles, women participate less in international trade.

Please join WITA as we discuss laws and regulations that constrain women’s participation in the labor force, and trade policies that can be adopted (or adapted) to support women engaging in international trade.  

Event to be held virtually on Zoom
