Women, Work, and the Economy: Macroeconomic Gains from Gender Equity

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has recently published a study titled Women, Work, and the Economy: Macroeconomic Gains from Gender Equity, pointing to the striking economic benefits that could come from increased female participation in the work force.

The IMF study, launched on the eve of Lagarde’s appearance on a panel in New York with Bill Clinton, Sheryl Sandberg, and Mo Ibrahim, as part of the Clinton Global Initiative, examines the specific macro-critical features of women’s participation in the labor market, the constraints preventing women from developing their full economic potential, and possible policies to overcome these obstacles.
