It's deeply disturbing that only about 2 out of 10 women in Pakistan 🇵🇰 have access to a bank account 🏦.
This lack of financial inclusion not only limits women's ability to make their own financial decisions and have autonomy, but it also has significant social and economic impacts.
Access to finance has been linked to women's empowerment 💪, allowing them to create economic opportunities for themselves and, in turn, improve the welfare of their families 🤝.

NEW—The social & economic effects of the #COVID19 pandemic threaten to reverse progress in #GenderEquality by widening gender gaps that already existed in employment, education & gender-based violence, according to our new study in @TheLancet
🗣“Based on previous crises, it is also likely men will be rehired at rates higher than women. This combination can result in severe impact to long-term income and career progression for #women globally,” said IHME Postdoctoral Scholar and co-author Dr. @luisaflorr
Based on data from 193 countries, a substantial amount of research shows that DIRECT health effects of the #pandemic have impacted 🚹 more than 🚺. Conversely, existing evidence indicates that INDIRECT effects of #COVID19 have affected women disproportionately. #GenderInequality

Looking forward to what should be a very timely discussion on the IFS's latest research geographic inequalities in labour market outcomes & how this may present challenges for the Govt's #LevellingUp agenda #IFSEvents
First @PJTheEconomist and the @NuffieldFound's @markfranks give a brief overview of the IFS #DeatonReview into inequalities, and why the Nuffield Foundation gave the review its financial support #IFSEvents
Franks recognises that #LevellingUp will only be delivered if we focus on multiple factors of #inequalities - age, gender, education, public services, jobs - not just place #IFSEvents

Als Kind war ich nur mit Jungs unterwegs. Bald lernte ich, dass ich mich wie sie verhalten muss, um Teil der Gruppe zu sein. Als Teil der Gruppe hatte ich dann aber auch ziemliche Vorteile: ich war „cool“ & „akzeptiert“… Ein persönlicher Thread 1/15
Mädchen waren mir gegenüber oft skeptisch. Oder war ich es ihnen gegenüber? Ich hatte immer beste Freundinnen, aber mit ihnen verhielt ich mich anders als in dieser Jungs-Gruppe. Mit meinen Freundinnen musste ich mich nicht ständig beweisen, um mich „über Wasser zu halten.“ 2/15
Warum das so war, konnte ich lange nicht nachvollziehen. Im Jungs-Kreis fühlte ich mich oft gehetzt & versuchte, mich unangreifbar zu halten. Ich bemerkte, dass ich in dem Jungs-Kreis nie über etwas persönliches redete, weil ich Angst davor hatte, mich angreifbar zu machen. 3/15
