What company is the world’s largest employer of women?

The world’s largest employer of women is Avon Products, Inc., which, as of 1992, employed 1.5 million women throughout the world.

Nearly all the women work as independent sales representatives, often known as Avon ladies.

Founded in 1883 by David H. McConnell as the California Perfume Company, it became Avon Products, Inc. in 1939, a decade after a line of household and personal care products were introduced under the name Avon.
