Last Wednesday, The World Bank released a report entitled “Voice and Agency: Empowering Women and Girls for Shared Prosperity.” The report pulls data from hundreds of sources and provides an overview of the issues women and girls face across the globe. A live discussion was held to reveal the findings with Hillary Rodham Clinton delivering the keynote address. Those also taking part in the event include: Dr. Jim Yong Kim, World Bank Group President; Jeni Klugman, Director, Gender & Development, World Bank Group; and Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, Executive Director, UN Women.
