Gender equality: a long way still to go
No country in the world has reached gender equality, Paola Profeta says in this video. If the gender gap in education and health has been almost closed, the gap in economic opportunity and participation and the gap in political participation are still wide. If we want to exploit talent in order to boost economic development and growth, we can’t neglect half the talent pool. Or “None of us can move forward when half of us id held back”, as said Justin Trudeau, the Prime Minister of Canada, that will host the G7 on Friday, 8 June and Saturday, 9 June. Gender equality will be discussed on Saturday morning.
