''Women's rights and financial development''
( 2022, Vol. 42 No.3 )
Based on studies where institutions augment financial development by guarantying property rights, reducing information asymmetry and bargaining power, our results show that countries that adopt and enhance women's rights experience greater financial development. Employing alternate identification strategies, we find that a standard deviation rise in adoption of women's rights improve financial development approximately between 10 and 20 percentage points.
Keywords: Financial development; women's rights; institutions.
