Abstract

The future of international economic order and the multilateral trading system is contingent on the ability of the system to distribute the benefits of trade equally to all. This has not been the case. The path to achieving gender equity is going to be difficult and necessitates sophisticated approaches that address different realities faced by women in different parts of the world, while recognizing the role that decision makers can play in overcoming long-standing practices that oppress or disenfranchise women and girls.
