Women and the Global Economy Social Media Toolkit

Two new interactive reports from the Women and Foreign Policy (WFP) program at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) show how closing the gender gap in the workforce could add a staggering $28 trillion to the global GDP—yet most countries still have legal, structural, and cultural obstacles in place that impede women’s full participation in the economy.

Below are links, language, graphics, and videos you can use to share these new interactive reports, "Growing Economies Through Gender Parity," and "Women’s Workplace Equality Index."

Growing Economies Through Gender Parity

Both advanced and developing countries stand to gain if women participate in the labor force at the same rate as men, work the same number of hours as men, and are employed at the same levels as men across sectors. Even without full parity, countries can grow the global gross domestic product (GDP) by $12 trillion by matching the rate of progress toward parity of their region's fastest-improving country.

“We've seen that women joining the labor force in the last decade [has] been a very important support to family incomes, which in turn help to support children. And we know that … there would be more GDP … [and] higher living standards in the world if there were more women participating in the labor force.”

“There are two things that really contribute to economic growth. One is demographics. And the other is productivity. If you take half the people out of the labor force, it's not good for the economy.”

Women's Workplace Equality Index

Most countries still have laws that make it harder for women to work than men. This inequality shortchanges not only women but also entire economies. Learn more: http://www.cfr.org/LegalEquality
