Thank you for the important reminder that women make up a big share of the extreme poor. The Bank in its WDR 2012 focused on gender and development and the institution is pushing hard to ensure that the programs and projects its supports consider girls and women as integral to tackling development challenges. This is true in terms of raising agricultural poverty, deciding on where to build wells or roads, as well as many other decisions that affect people’s lives and prospects.
