The Global Gender Gap Index is an index designed to measure gender equality in the world population. It includes 144 major and emerging nations.
The Global Gender Gap Index examines the gap between men and women across four fundamental categories: Economic Participation and Opportunity, Educational Attainment, Health and Survival and Political Empowerment.
According to the Global Gender Gap report 2018, gender gap score stands at 68%.
Not just that, women find it hard to even take birth in this world.
According to the United Nations Population Fund, about 117 million girls demographically go “missing” due to sex-selective abortions, female foeticide and infanticide.
Because of these gender inequalities, women find it hard to survive in the so called men-dominated world.
Let us eliminate the practices of female-child abortions, and other gender inequalities, to increase the count and participation of women in the world population.
This world population day, Centre for Social Research urges you to make the world a better place for the female gender.
