The Global Gender Gap Index assesses countries on how well they are dividing their resources and opportunities among their male and female populations, regardless of the overall levels of these resources and opportunities. By providing a comprehensible framework for assessing and comparing global gender gaps and by revealing those countries that are role models in dividing these resources equitably between women and men, serves as a catalyst for greater awareness as well as greater exchange between policymakers.
The Report examines four critical areas of inequality between men and women.
Sweden (1), Norway (2), Finland (3) and Iceland (4) top the rankings in the World Economic Forum's Global Gender Gap Report 2007. All countries in the top 20 made progress relative to their scores in 2006 – some more so than others. Latvia (13) and Lithuania (14) made the biggest advances among the top 20, gaining six and seven places respectively, driven by smaller gender gaps in labour force participation and wages. The Report covers a total of 128 countries, representing over 90% of the world’s population.
