"In Sweden, we celebrate one hundred years of women's suffrage, and international, while the pay gap between men and women. But it will still take several hundred years before the world is equal, according to a report from the World economic forum (WEF)."
"Compared with last year, the pay gap between men and women has decreased globally, after the 2017 for the first time in ten years increased. The leveling is counteracted by the fewer women in politics in 2018, combined with greater inequality in access to health care and education."
"After years of progress in education, health and political presence and gender equality has gone backwards in all three areas this year."
"Fewer women are working."
"Only when it comes to economic opportunities, the gap between the sexes declined somewhat. And the number of women in executive positions has increased to 34 per cent globally, said the WEF."
"But at the same time, the report shows that there are now proportionately fewer women than men work. It suggests that many jobs that were previously carried out by women, are now going to automate."
"But the situation varies in different countries and regions."
"And the nordic countries are in the top: men and women are the most equal in Iceland followed by Norway, Sweden and Finland."
"Syria, Iraq, Pakistan and Yemen have the largest overall gender differences of the countries studied."
"the united states continues its decline and lose two places to number 51, the WEF explains, among other things, that fewer women ministers than in the past."
