Stalled progress : recent research on why labor markets are failing women / James Heintz.: E97-94/2018E-PDF

"This paper draws on findings generated through the Growth and Economic Opportunities for Women (GrOW) initiative—a multi-funder partnership that has supported 14 research projects in 50 developing countries—to explore this paradox. It addresses the complex links between factors that shape women’s labor market participation and their economic empowerment. It reviews and synthesizes GrOW research findings to shed light on why development gains have yet to translate into more and better employment for women in some regions, and why employment gains seen in others have failed to empower women"--Executive summary, page 1.
