"There are no toilets available for women in the numbers that they represent. Think about it. It's such a simple thing. There's certainly no child care. So, is there a safe place you can leave your child while you're bustling around trying to sell in the marketplace?" she said.
Hilary said if more women could get to participate fully and get paid equal pay for equal work, the U.S. economy as well as the economies across the world will recover at a faster rate.
"The Gross Domestic Product or GDP projections that have been calculated, if we could get women's labour force participation to equal men's, are staggering. You know, in developed countries, it can be 8, 9, 10 per cent of an increase in GDP over the next 15 to 20 years. In less developed countries, it could be 30 to 40 per cent," she said. Preparing young people for jobs available through education and training was going to be one of the most significant questions for public policy and for private sector decision-makers, Hillary said. "We need more entrepreneurship. We need to encourage more young people to start businesses. We need more seed capital. We need more crowd funding. We need more access. We need more mentoring and teaching about business plans and how you deal with the economy and the stresses that you will face," she said. Hillary and her husband Bill Clinton, former U.S. President, met PM Modi in New York last month when PM Modi visited the US to attend the annual session of the UN General Assembly.
