Intl. Women's Day 2017: Recent incidents of disproportionate impacts in business & some limited progress

On 8 March, International Women’s Day, we are highlighting business’ impacts on women across the world – from agribusiness in Latin America, to apparel factories in India and the American engineering sector.

We also include some recent positive developments on gender equality, but cases from India, Tanzania and Guatemala demonstrate that companies must take stronger action to address their disproportionate impacts on women.

This story will be updated through the day with International Women’s Day items that relate to business.
