According to a new study from the World Economic Forum, it will take 170 years until full gender equality is achieved. The review was based on education, health, political empowerment and economic participation. The latter two factors are the areas in which women fare the worst, the study found. “An average gap of 31.7 percent remains to be closed worldwide across the four Index dimensions in order to achieve universal gender parity,” according to the report. Notably, some regions of the world are closer to full gender parity than others.
