Qatar ranks to­wards the bot­tom in the World Eco­nomic Fo­rum's an­nual Global Gen­der Gap In­dex which ranks coun­tries on the gap be­tween women

and men on health, ed­u­ca­tion, eco­nomic and po­lit­i­cal in­di­ca­tors. Qatar was placed at po­si­tion 122 out of 145 coun­tries this year, in close prox­im­ity

to sev­eral Gulf states, in­clud­ing Kuwait (117), the UAE (119) and Bahrain (124). Saudi Ara­bia and Oman were once again near the bot­tom, rank­ing 134 and

135, re­spec­tively.
