VdA contributed to the 2022 edition of World Bank “Women, Business and the Law” report. 

This report includes a series of studies that analyse laws and regulations affecting women’s economic opportunity in 190 economies, through eight indicators—structured around women’s interactions with the law as they begin, progress through, and end their careers—align with the economic decisions women make at various stages of their lives: Mobility, Workplace, Pay, Marriage, Parenthood, Entrepreneurship, Assets, and Pension.

VdA participated in the preparation of this report, in the jurisdictions of São Tomé and Príncipe and Timor-Leste, coordinated by Marina Costa Cabral (Senior Associate) with the contribution of Catarina Pinto Correia (Partner), Virna Neves (Partner of VNA Advogados, VdA Legal Partners exclusive member in São Tomé and Príncipe), Helena Manoel Viana and Rita Rocha (Associates).
