The global financial crisis witnessed in the past years would not have happened, with the same intensity, had women been in higher positions of power, according to a UN labour expert.

Raymond Torres, Director of the International Labour Organization's research department, says that women should be given a more equal role in the world of work.

Stephanie Castro has been speaking with Mr Torres about the present and prospective economic and employment situation for women around the world.
