Of course it does.

As The Economist points out, textbook models of the economy and the labour market are subtly sexist and outdated. For example, 'Economics' as described in the book, 'Principles of Economics' is, "the study of men as they live and move and think in the ordinary business of life."

Yet, in the past few years it has been acknowledged that narrowing the gender pay gap has the potential to unlock extra economic growth and increase GDP, with many companies committing valuable time and resources to raise awareness around gender inequality in the workplace. As a women in business, it is extremely motivating to see these issues being addressed in the media and within company walls.
