  • India has substantially improved its rank in the Global Gender Gap index- moving from 108th to 87th position within a year, according to a report released by the World Economic Forum (WEF).

About the report

  • The WEF measures the gender gap index of the countries by taking four factors into account- economy, health, education and political representation.
  • In the latest edition, the report finds that progress towards parity in the key economic pillar of gender has slowed dramatically with the gap—which stands at 59%—now larger than at any point since 2008.
  • Globally, the leading four nations continue to be Scandinavian: Iceland, Finland, Norway and Sweden, in that order.

India’s performance

  • India is ranked 87 out of 144, improving from its 108 position in 2015.
  • It has closed its gender gap by 2% in a year: its gap now stands at 68% across the four pillars
  • The major improvement, however, has been in education, where it has managed to close its gap entirely in primary and secondary education.
  • India is also among a group of countries that have made key investments in women’s education but have generally not removed barriers to women’s participation in the workforce.
