Mongolia sees drop in gender equality rank
16:35, 31 October 2016, 6838

AKIPRESS.COM - This year, Mongolia ranked 58th in the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) index of nations based on the gender gap in key areas such as the economy, politics, education and health, according to The UB Post.

Mongolia is one of the “five most-improved countries over the past decade on the health and survival gender gap”, according to the Global Gender Gap Report 2016 of the WEF.

Last year, Mongolia was listed 56th in the index, but this year, Mongolia got an overall score of 0.705 for gender parity, experiencing a small decrease in its overall score and ranking due to a widening of gender gap among legislators, senior officials and managers. Besides the political empowerment index, Mongolia received an extremely high score on education attainment (0.99), health and survival (0.98), and economic participation and opportunity (0.77).

Among countries in the East Asia and Pacific region, Mongolia ranked sixth, faring better than more economically developed countries such as China, the Republic of Korea and Japan. The Philippines came in first in the regional ranking and in seventh in the global ranking.

According to the latest Global Gender Gap Report, Iceland was ranked number one in gender equality in the world. Iceland was followed by Finland and Norway. Germany ranked 13th, France 17th, the U.K. 20th, the U.S. 45th, China 99th, Russia 75, and Japan came in 111th.
