Women continue to face challenges in the workplace.

Despite significant progress, remarkable disparities continue in the treatment of women and men. Persistent wage disparities between women and men, discrimination in hiring and promotions and sexual harassment are inequities that have legal remedies. Women cannot attain full equality without securing economic independence.
