According to the World Bank, no country can achieve its potential or meet the challenges of the 21st century until girls and women have the same rights, opportunity, and voice as boys and men.

Addressing gender gaps, especially in paid employment, financial inclusion and asset ownership, and voice and agency, can enable women and men to fully participate in the economy.
