The American company, Walmart, has announced plans to work with more businesses owned by women and to help female workers get job training. The announcement comes weeks after the United States supreme court dismissed a law suit charging the company with discrimination against women. Walmart officials said Wednesday that they will double the yearly amount the  company spends on businesses owned by women to 5 billion dollars by 2016. The company will also double the amount it  spends on products from international suppliers run by women. Walmart says it will help train and educate 400,000 women. About half of them are low income women in the United States.
