Global gender gap narrowing, but still 132 years to reach parity
World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Global Gender Gap Report 2022 shows that gender parity may not be achieved for a further 132 years.
In 2022, the global gender gap has been closed by 68.1%. At the current rate of progress, it will take 132 years to reach full parity. This represents a slight four-year improvement compared to the 2021 estimate (136 years to parity).
“As crises are compounding, women’s workforce outcomes are suffering and the risk of global gender parity backsliding further intensifies,” cites the report.
