According to the World Economic Forum and its 2021 Global Gender Gap Report, “Another generation of women will have to wait for gender parity... Closing the global gender gap has increased by a generation from 99.5 years to 135.6 years.” What is the Global Gender Gap, how is it defined, how is it measured?
