Did you know that another generation of women will have to wait for gender parity? That is women have to wait 135.6 years to be on equal footing with men. According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report 2021 as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to be felt, closing the global gender gap has increased by a generation from 99.5 years to 135.6 years. The report estimates that it will take an average of 135.6 years for women and men to reach parity on a range of factors worldwide, instead of the 99.5 years outlined in the 2020 report. Data from 156 different countries are taken into consideration and analysed on the factors such as economic opportunity, political power, education and health. Countries are ranked according to the Global Gender Gap Index, which measures scores across these indicators on a 0 to 100 scale, and these scores are interpreted as distance to gender parity, or the percentage of the gender gap that has been closed in a country.
