According to the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) latest Global Gender Gap Report 2023, Bangladesh ranks first among South Asian countries in terms of gender parity.
Bangladesh ranks 59th in the world with a score of 72.2%, demonstrating strong progress toward gender parity. Women across the country witnessed an increase in overall gender parity this year, as evidenced by a higher score and index ranking compared to 2022. Bangladesh will be ranked 71st in the world in 2022, with a gender parity score of 71.4%.
The Global Gender Gap Index assesses the current condition and evolution of gender parity in four major areas: economic participation and opportunity, educational attainment, health and survival, and political empowerment.
The parity score (the level of advancement toward gender parity) for each indicator is computed as the ratio of the value of each indicator for women to the value for men. A parity score of one shows complete parity.
