VdA contributed to the 2023 edition of World Bank “Women, Business and the Law” report.

This report includes a series of studies that analyze laws and regulations affecting women’s economic opportunity in 190 economies, through eight indicators—structured around women’s interactions with the law as they begin, progress through, and end their careers—align with the economic decisions women make at various stages of their lives: Mobility, Workplace, Pay, Marriage, Parenthood, Entrepreneurship, Assets, and Pension.

VdA participated in the preparation of this report, in the jurisdictions of São Tomé and Príncipe and Timor-Leste, coordinated by Marina Costa Cabral with the contribution of Catarina Pinto Correia, Virna Neves, Helena Manoel Viana and Rita Rocha.
