Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Greece ranks last among Euro­pean Union mem­ber-states in terms of gen­der equal­ity, ac­cord­ing to an an­nual in­dex com­piled by the Euro­pean In­sti­tute for Gen­der Equal­ity (EIGE) that was made pub­lic yes­ter­day.

The top per­form­ing coun­try is Swe­den, with a score of 82.6 out of 100, while Greece is at the bot­tom of the in­dex with 50 points. The coun­try that has im­proved the most as re­gards gen­der equal­ity is Italy, which gained 12.9 points since last year and now ranks 14th. “We are still a long way off from reach­ing a gen­der-equal so­ci­ety and all coun­tries in the Euro­pean Union have room to im­prove,” said EIGE di­rec­tor Vir­ginija Lang­bakk. “In some ar­eas, the gaps are even big­ger than 10 years ago.”
