“Study after study shows that when women can work, manage incomes and run businesses, the benefits extend far beyond the individual level – to children, communities and entire economies. Countries that create better opportunities for women and girls can raise productivity, improve outcomes for children, make institutions more representative, become more competitive, and advance development prospects for all – and this ultimately contributes to a world free of poverty. That is why gender equality is a top World Bank Group priority, and the reason I support the Geneva Gender Champions initiative – as together with other leaders in International Geneva, we can bring about real change that will impact the rest of the world.”
