One Billion Women Will Enter The Global Workforce In The Next Decade

According to a new report from the management and consulting firm Booz and Co., one billion women will enter the global workforce over the next decade. The report shows that “there is compelling evidence that women can be powerful drivers of economic growth. Our own estimates indicate that raising female employment to male levels could have a direct impact on GDP of 5 percent in the United States, 9 percent in Japan, 12 percent in the United Arab Emirates, and 34 percent in Egypt.”
