Female perspectives in the global economy

Rosana Mirkovic, October 2011. This report examines how ACCA’s female membership has experienced the global economic conditions, by tracking their responses to ACCA’s confidence and recovery indices. The findings point towards some notable differences between the female and male respondents in the areas of business support and access to finance. These lead to lessons for policymakers and others working towards closing the gender gap, which is prevalent in much of the world’s economic activity.
