Pakistan is at the bottom of the list in terms of gender equality worldwide according to the annual Global Gender Gap Report. The report is published by the World Economic Forum (WEF). It quantifies the magnitude of genderbased disparities and tracks their progress over time. The GGG report seeks to measure one important aspect of gender equality: the relative gaps between women and men in four areas – health, education, economy and politics.
According to the report, Pakistan is ranked 141st in terms of economic participation and opportunity for women, 132nd in terms of education attainment, 119th for health and survival and 85th for political empowerment. Since 2006, when the WEF first began issuing its annual reports, the access of Pakistani women to economic participation and opportunity has gone down to 141st from 112th.
