Designed to raise awareness among a global audience about the gender gaps and the way women are the most oppressed in most of undeveloped countries, the Global Gender Gap Report 2014 ranks Albania the 83rd, in a list of 142 countries. The report shows that gender gap situation has improved since women started to play a significant role as workforce and have started to create strong economic fundamentals.
The report issued by the World Economic Forum, highlights the improved ranking of Albania by showing that the country has worked to reduce gender gap issues. According to the report, women are more educated nowadays even why in most of countries they do unpaid jobs or are less paid than men for the same type of jobs.
“What women study is still different from what men study. In only two countries – Albania and Panama – are there more women than men graduates in STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics),” as quoted in the Global Gender Gap Index.
Global Gender Gap Index was created by the World Economic Forum to measure the existing gender gap for all countries, as a tool to identify and proclaim gender gap as a real problem of many societies. This index aims to help countries reduce it and the opportunity to track their progress on gender issues relative to themselves and to other countries.
