The Myanmar Times - Weekend - - World -

THE global gen­der gap in 2017 widened for the first time since records be­gan in 2006, with a halt in progress in eco­nomic and po­lit­i­cal ar­eas spark­ing con­cerns, the World Eco­nomic Fo­rum said in a re­port Thurs­day.

The re­port said a widen­ing gap was seen in all four of the re­port’s pil­lars -- ed­u­ca­tional at­tain­ment, health and sur­vival, eco­nomic op­por­tu­nity, and po­lit­i­cal em­pow­er­ment - based on which the Global Gen­der Gap In­dex is cal­cu­lated. – Ky­odo
