It Could Take 131 Years for the World to Close the Gender Gap, Report Shows

By ,

Progress on achieving global gender equality is languishing.

A new report from the World Economic Forum estimates that women won’t attain parity with men for another 131 years. In other words, not until 2154.

The overall gender gap — a measurement of equality across the realms of the economy, politics, health and education — closed by a mere 0.3% as compared to last year, according to the WEF’s “Global Gender Gap Report 2023,” released Wednesday.
