Driving Toward Equality: Women, Ride-Hailing, and the Sharing Economy

New technologies and business models are rapidly opening alternative pathways to economic growth in emerging markets, offering opportunities to reshape lives while improving economies. The sharing economy--especially the ride-hailing industry–is a notable part of this transformation and has the potential to better include and serve women.

The report, Driving Toward Equality: Women, Ride-Hailing, and the Sharing Economy, published by IFC with the support of Accenture, explores how women and men participate in ride-hailing, particularly in emerging markets. Using data from Uber and a survey of more than 11,000 drivers and riders, the report sheds light on how the emergence of ride-hailing is affecting women's work and mobility and how companies across the sharing economy can ensure women's equal participation and gain.
