"Qatar is home to one of the most unequal societies in the world when it comes to gender, according to a new index."
Qatar’s gender gap is one of the largest in the world, new index says
"Qatar is home to one of the most unequal societies in the world when it comes to gender, according to a new index.
The country ranked 117th out of 122 nations listed in business school INSEAD‘s Gender Progress Index 2017, which was released this month.
That puts Qatar behind all of its Gulf peers.
According to the report, the low score had to do with a lack of female political involvement, as well as the low number of men pursuing higher education in Qatar.
That said, none of the Gulf countries fared particularly well in the index.
The UAE was the highest-ranked GCC nation at 85th. Kuwait was 99th, Bahrain 103rd, Saudi Arabia 110th and Oman was 113th."
