Iran ranks near the bottom of the Gender-Gap Index

Iran ranks among the bottom five in the global gender gap index for 2022, dragged down by the lack of opportunities for women in the conservative, male-dominated society.

The World Economic Forum (WEF) released one Report on 13 July, which measures women’s economic participation, level of education, health and political survival.

Taliban-led Afghanistan is the last of 146 countries in the index, while neighboring Pakistan is only one place better in 145th place, the report says. Iran is 143rd.

Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran are joined by the conflict-ridden African countries such as the Democratic Republic of Congo and Chad at the bottom of the list.

Iceland, Finland, Norway, New Zealand and Sweden top the list.

Moldova (16) and Albania (18) were ranked among the top 20.

Overall, the report says “Gender equality does not recover.”

“It will take another 132 years to reduce the global gender gap. As the crises worsen, women’s labor performance suffers and the risk of global gender equality falling further increases.
