Gender equality

Nazia: Turbat, Kech
Global gender equality had gradually improved over the years, but from 2021 global gender report shows that the end of the global gender gap is still 135 years away. The pandemic played a huge role in reversing positive trends as women were hit harder financially. According to Oxfam, women experienced a 5% job loss while men experienced 3.9%. That means women lost about 5800 million in 2020. This is a low estimate since it doesn’t count the informal economy, which includes millions of women. Furthermore, women are also more likely to live in poverty, more affected by gender-based violence and more affected by climate change.
