Summary
  • Examines the "direct relationship between a woman's rights and freedoms and the economic prosperity of her country"--Dust jacket flap
  • "The economics of gender inequality is often reduced to equal pay for equal work. But there is much more to it than that. Can a woman, whether married or single, register a business in the same way as a man? Can she sign a contract? Does she have the right to confer citizenship on her children? Do men and women have equal ownership rights to property? Are there criminal sanctions for sexual harassment? Gender inequalities in the fields of education, law, employment, and wages lead to incalculable social and political disparities. These disparities in turn give rise to endemic poverty and violence, individual frustration, social instability, and cultural disaffection. When women are deprived of their rights, economies are eroded, democracies weakened, and the fabric of societies radically undermined. This pioneering book shows, once and for all, the direct correlation between the freedoms given to women and the prosperity enjoyed by all."--
