UN report highlights gender gaps worldwide

Oct 21, 2010

Despite much progress accomplished in ensuring equal status of women and men in many areas, World’s Women 2010, a report launched by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) makes it clear that still much more needs to be done to close the gender gaps in public life.

The World’s Women 2010: Trends and Statistics 

Publisher: United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), October 2010

The World’s Women 2010: Trends and Statistics is the fifth issue ofThe World’s Women and is being produced to coincide with the first-ever World’s Statistics Day, October 20. 

The current issue highlights the differences in the status of women and men in eight areas – population and families, health, education, work, power and decision-making, violence against women, environment and poverty. Analyses are based mainly on statistics from international and national statistical sources.

The World’s Women 2010 shows that progress towards gender equality has been made in some areas, such as school enrolment, health and economic participation. 

At the same time the report shows that much more needs to be done to close the gender gap in critical areas such as power and decision-making and violence against women.
