Women, Business and the Law 2010 is a report that analyzes differences in formal laws and institutions affecting women's prospects as entrepreneurs and employees across six topics—accessing institutions, using property, getting a job, dealing with taxes, building credit, and going to court. The report is the first to measure the gender gap in policy variables using quantitative and objective data.

The Gender Dimensions of Investment Climate Reform is a step by step guide book for policymakers and development practitioners who want to design and implement investment climate reforms that help increase women's participation in the private sector. It presents fresh solutions that are actionable, replicable and scalable tools for promoting gender-sensitive investment climate reforms that would benefit both men and women.
