MAPA INTERACTIVO: ÍNDICE GLOBAL DE LA BRECHA DE GÉNERO
The Global Gender Gap Index of the World Economic Forum was presented for the first time in 2006 to measure the magnitude of the gender gap in terms of health, education, economy and political indicators.
It is used to understand to what extent they are distributing their resources and opportunities equally between men and women in the 142 countries they analyze and thus be able to compare them. Again, in the last report, Iceland is in first place, followed by Finland and Norway. In the last places of the ranking are Chad, Pakistan and Yemen, are the countries where there are greater differences between men and women. Specifically, the Gender Gap Index analyzes the following areas:
-Economic participation and opportunity: salaries, participation and highly trained employment
– Education: access to basic and higher levels of education
– Political participation: representation in decision-making structures
– Health and survival: life expectancy and male-female ratio
