But just as gender similarities are an asset to the world of work, are there female perspectives that men don’t share, which provide unique and useful insight?

As Fatima Mendez has been finding out for this UN Gender Focus podcast, that’s one of the interesting viewpoints to emerge from a study supported by the International Labour Organization (ILO) looking at the differences between the sexes when it comes to economics and public policy.
