ISS well-represented during IMF Conference on Gender and Macroeconomics
For economic empowerment of women in Pakistan, Siegmann argued, a gender-sensitive policy for wage-led growth is required. In her opening remarks, Christine Lagarde, IMF Managing Director, reminded the participants that an event like this would have been unthinkable at IMF five years back.
The ISS was well-represented during this first conference of its kind. Besides Siegmann’s paper titled 'Has Growth Been Good for Women’s Employment in Pakistan?' (co-authored by Hadia Majid), PhD scholar Umbreen Salim and MA alumna Anila Noor presented their poster on 'Women and Will: Success Strategies from Pakistan'.
