Denmark smoke a place down on the ligestillingsrangliste

While our nordic neighbours top the league table of gender equality, smoking Denmark further away from the top 10.

Denmark seems to be lagging behind in the international struggle for gender equality.

According to the annual report on equality by the World Economic Forum (WEF) falls from a 13.-place in 2018, a 14.-place in 2019.

Our nordic neighbours, the topper in contrast, the list of the most equal countries in the world.

Iceland, Norway, Finland and Sweden is respectively the number one, two, three and four.

the WEF, based in Geneva, Switzerland, reckoning each year to gender equality in 153 countries, the development in four areas: Education, health, economy and politics.

It writes the AFP news agency.

the Uk is just as Denmark has fallen down the ladder and go from a 15.-space for a 21.-space. It writes The Guardian.

At the global level has, according to the report has been so little progress on equality, that with the present speed will take the 99.5 year, before the men and women are equals.

It is a however little progress compared with the predictions in 2018, when the prospect of global equality sounded in 108 years. It writes the AFP.

This year's report underlines the growing need for action is taken, says Klaus Schwab, who is the founder and president of the WEF, The Guardian.

- At the current rate it will almost taken a century to achieve gender equality, and it is a time horizon, which we cannot accept in today's globalised world, especially in the young generations, which has a growing progressive views on gender equality.

While some areas have shown improvement, there has globally been a decline in other areas.

for Example, more women become a part of governments in several countries compared with last year, writes the BBC.

But the reverse is the economic inequality between men and women has been increased since last year, the report concludes.

This is because, according to the WEF, among other things, that women are under-represented in virtually all of the fastest-growing industries, such as the so-called cloud computing, and artificial intelligence.
