Women often face economic inequality in terms of wages, access to credit, and job security.
Here are 5 things we can do about it.
1. Equal Pay: Women earn, on average, less than men for the same work. To promote equal pay, employers should conduct audits to identify any wage gaps and take steps to close them, such as offering equal pay for equal work.
2. Access to Credit: Women are often denied access to credit due to gender-based discrimination. To promote access to credit for women, lenders should implement gender-sensitive policies and procedures, including targeting women for credit products.
3. Job Security: Women are often denied job security due to gender-based discrimination. To promote job security for women, employers should implement non-discriminatory hiring and promotion practices, including recruiting a diverse pool of candidates.
4. Flexible Work Policies: Women often lack access to flexible work policies, such as part-time work or telecommuting, which can lead to job insecurity. To promote flexible work policies, employers should develop policies that provide flexibility for both men and women.
5. Entrepreneurship: Women are often denied access to the resources they need to start and grow their own businesses. To promote entrepreneurship for women, governments and organizations should create programs that provide women with access to capital, mentorship, and business training.
