Men and women want to equality wait for 118 years

Women now earn what men did a decade ago, according to the World Economic Forum, underlining the sluggish global progress made in bridging the gender divide over the past 10 years.
In its latest Global Gender Gap Report, the think-tank says that the gap in health, education, economic opportunity and politics around the world has closed by only 4 per cent in the past decade, whilst the economic gap has narrowed by just 3 per cent, suggesting it will take another 118 years to achieve equality.
“Progress towards wage equality and labour force parity has stalled markedly since 2009/2010,” the report says.
On key measures, the gender gap has widened since 2006. In education, the gap between women and men’s literacy rate and educational attainment worsened in nearly a quarter of the 145 countries surveyed over the past 10 years.
While in 97 countries more women than men are enrolling in university, women make up the majority of skilled workers in only 68 countries and the majority of leaders — legislators, senior officials and managers — in only four.
“Women hold the majority of senior roles in only a handful of countries,” said Saadia Zahidi, head of the global challenge on gender parity at WEF, which works with corporates such as Coca-Cola, Bank of America, Bloomberg, Renault-Nissan and SABMiller on the issue. “Companies and governments need to implement new policies to prevent this continued loss of talent and instead leverage it for boosting growth and competitiveness.”
In the WEF’s annual rankings the Nordic countries still top the index, with Ireland the highest placed non-Nordic country at fifth, after Iceland, Finland, Norway and Sweden. Rwanda, the Philippines and New Zealand are the only non-European countries in the top 10.
