The head of the IMF told a high level gathering in Japan, that the global economy could be greatly boosted, by unleashing the economic power of women, who remain the world's largest excluded group.

IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde said in a keynote speech at the 'World Assembly for Women' in Tokyo, that excluding women simply makes no economic sense - and including them can be a tremendous boon to the 21st  century global economy.

She identified three main ways to unleash the economic power and potential of women: change economic policies, change laws and institutions and change attitudes and culture.
