Women, Business and the Law: Getting to Equal

On September 23, 2015, the Avon Global Center for Women and Justice at Cornell Law School, together with Cornell University's Women in Public Policy, hosted Ms. Almodovar-Reteguis for a talk celebrating the launch of the World Bank's "2016 report on Women, Business and the Law." Drawing on the report's findings, Ms. Almodovar-Reteguis discussed the legal barriers to women's employment that exist around the world, and explored in-depth how violence against women impedes their economic empowerment.
