According to the latest World Economic Forum Global Gender Gap Report, it would take another 100 years before the Gender Gap closes.
What is the Gender Gap?
The Gender Gap, as measured by the Global Gender Gap Index first introduced by the World Economic Forum in 2006, is a framework for capturing the magnitude of gender-based disparities and tracking their progress over time.
The index benchmarks national gender gaps across the following dimensions.
1️⃣ Economic Participation and Opportunity
2️⃣ Educational Attainment
3️⃣ Health and Survival
4️⃣ Political Empowerment
In 2020, the Global Gender Gap score (based on the population-weighted average) stands at 68.6%. This means that, on average, the gap is narrower, and the remaining gap to close is now 31.4%
🇺🇸The United States ranks close to the bottom at 53 with the Western developed nations, down two ranks from the prior year.
That said, at the slow speed experienced over the period of 2006-2020, it will take 257 years to close this gap.
