Particular importance is placed on the idea of reaching agreement on an issue by redefining it. In the case of Japan, this Cited by: Although micro level effects of gender equality on individual productivity and human development outcomes have been well documented and have important ramifications for aggregate economic performance, establishing an empirical relationship between gender equality and poverty reduction and growth at the macro level has proven to be more challenging.
