We Need More Women In Leadership Positions

Four Nordic countries are at the very top in respecting gender equality, but more generally, the next generation of women will have to wait for gender parity for 135 years

For the 14th time, the World Economic Forum has published the Global Gender Gap Report, and according to the report for 2021, the next generation of women will have to wait 135 years for gender parity. That is how long it will take our global civilization to see a world with equal views and opportunities.

The widest gap is still where the most important decisions are made, in politics. It is estimated that it will take women 145 years to become equal state leaders.

There is progress in the world of business, but the gap is so great that this year it is estimated at 267 years. The share of women in highly qualified professions has continued to grow, as has progress towards equal pay. On the other hand, overall income disparities are still only partially bridged, and there is a persistent shortage of women in management positions, as women hold only 27% of all managerial positions.

On the list of the most successful countries in achieving equality, as many as four Nordic countries are at the top, Iceland, Finland, Norway and Sweden.
