A new report on global gender parity says it will take 132 years at the current pace to reach full equality.

The Global Gender Gap report, released by the World Economic Forum, ranks 146 countries, of which the top five are Iceland, Finland, Norway, New Zealand and Sweden.

Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Iran and Chad are among the worst.

The report says the cost of living crisis is impacting women disproportionately with a widening gender gap in the labour force.

It says Covid-19 has set gender parity back by a generation. South Asia has the widest gap and it’ll take about two centuries to attain parity.
