This Sunday is going to be Women’s Day. So this seems to me a good occasion to share the 2019 Gender Equality Index. Advances in this field cannot be considered completely satisfactory, however we have made some progress in Europe. Let us work even harder to achieve new goals in the next future.
The research was released by the European Institute for Gender Equality and the analysis was based on 6 different areas: work, money, knowledge, time, power and health. In EU the average Gender Equality score was 67.4 points out of 100 in 2019, with an increase of 1.2 points since 2015, an almost negligible improvement, but better than nothing in any case. Still too many are the EU countries where the index is subdued: let’s take Sweden as an example and let’s try hard to at least reach its position, the only country where 80 points are exceeded, reaching 83.6 rate. Have a look at the complete overview.
