Turkey ranked 124th in the World Economic Forum's Global Gender Gap Report, lagging behind many developing countries.
Turkey climbed 9 places in 2022, going up from 133rd place in last year’s report, but still lagged behind countries such as Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Ghana and Nigeria and just a step ahead of countries like Angola, Bhutan and Saudi Arabia.
The country with the highest gender inequality is Afghanistan, which ranked 146th.
Pakistan, Democratic Republic of Congo and Iran were the other countries at the bottom of the list.
“Gender parity is not recovering, it will take another 132 years to close the global gender gap. As crises are compounding, women's workforce outcomes are suffering and the risk of global gender parity backsliding further intensifies” the report read.
The country with the highest gender equality in the report was Iceland. It was followed by Finland, Norway, New Zealand, Sweden and Rwanda.
