Economic benefits of gender equality: briefing paper

This briefing paper presents the overall results of EIGE's study on economic benefits of gender equality in the EU.

Using a robust econometric model to estimate a broad range of macroeconomic benefits of gender equality in several areas such as education, labour market activity and wages, the study show that more gender equality would lead to:
 - Between 6.3 million and 10.5 million additional jobs in 2050 with about 70% of these jobs taken by women
 - Positive GDP impacts that grow over time
 - An increase in GDP per capita of up to nearly 10% in 2050
