Study: Women Will Make What Men Make in 202 Years

When it comes to equal pay, women will have to wait more than two centuries before they see the earnings of their male counterparts, according to a new global report. The World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report has found that it will take 202 years to completely bridge differences in economic opportunity, including pay between men and women, Bloomberg News reports. The study found that overall gender disparity across politics, work, health, and education went up by less than 0.1 percent —meaning it will take more than a century to reach parity. The economic opportunity gap, which is based on participation, pay, and advancement in the workplace, will reportedly take the longest to close. “What we’re seeing globally is that we don’t have any country that’s achieved gender equality, regardless of level of development, region or type of economy,” said Anna-Karin Jatfors, regional director for U.N. Women. “Gender inequality is the reality around the world, and we’re seeing that in all aspects of women’s lives.”
