Ensuring Women have an equal place in the business and work environment is essential to their quality of life, and to development.
This video from the World Bank highlights the key issues that women face in getting into business and the workplace, as well as the key benefits that come from them managing to overcome all the obstacles. Development can only come if men and women are treated equally when it comes to work. If half the population is not allowed into proper employment, then African economies are going to remain where they are, and levels of poverty are going to remain where they are. Real change needs to be made in order for African countries to lift themselves out of poverty.
