Parliament report looks into female economic integration

On the occasion of the International Women's day, the House of Commons Library publishes a report examining a variety of indicators for women’s equality both in the UK and internationally. The UN’s IWD theme for 2017 is Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50:50 by 2030, bringing attention to the economic empowerment of women in the globalised world. But the topics addressed go beyond it: alongside social, economic and education integration, many aspects of health care and anti-violence measures are also addressed.
