The Global Gender Gap Report is published annually by the WEF
The World Economic Forum is an international organization for public-private cooperation. The report was published with the following comment-
Gender parity is not recovering, according to the Global Gender Gap Report 2022. It will take another 132 years to close the global gender gap. As crises are compounding, women’s workforce outcomes are suffering and the risk of global gender parity backsliding further intensifies.
Iceland has ranked first with a score of 0.908, followed by Finland, Norway, and New Zealand.
Afghanistan has come in last, with a Gender Gap Score of 0.435.
