Database of Laws Affecting Women

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

The World Bank’s Gender Law Library (here) looks as if it might be useful to researchers.  Here’s the description:

The Gender Law Library is a collection of national legal provisions impacting women’s economic status in 183 economies. The database facilitates comparative analysis of legislation, serves as a resource for research, and contributes to reforms that can enhance women’s full economic participation. We update the collection regularly but do not guarantee that laws are the most recent version, nor is the library exhaustive. Translations are not official unless indicated.

The database is hosted by the World Bank, and supported by the World Bank’s Gender Action Plan (subtitle: “Gender Equality as Smart Economics”) and the Norwegian Trust Fund.
