There is no question about it: women must be accepted as equal partners with men if we are to successfully address the shared and existential challenges of our time, from climate change to economic resilience to global health and security.
But despite how surely we know this, the data shows gender disparity is so entrenched that the World Economic Forum anticipates it will take 132 years to overcome it.
The Global Gender Gap Report surveys 146 countries and focuses on four pillars:
- The Health and Survival gender gap has closed by 95.8 percent, according to the 2022 report, and Educational Attainment by 94.4 percent.
- But Economic Participation and Opportunity is at 60.3 percent, and Political Empowerment stands at 22 percent.
Yes, we still have far to go.
