India is the only country in the WEF list to exhibit a wider economic gap than its political one
India’s rank, at 112th out of 153 countries, on a chart drawn from the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Index 2020 is no shocker. The country has been backsliding on this for years. India was ranked No 98 in 2006, when the WEF’s first gender gap report was published, and other countries have performed better in the years since. The index tracks gender-based disparities on economic, political, education and health criteria. While India is 18th on political representation, the country fares very poorly on the other three parameters. The starkest dip has been on economic opportunity and participation, on which the country is ranked 149th. Just four countries do worse than that.
