Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Gender Equality in Asia Pacific Based on 2014 OECD Development Centres Social Institutions and Gender Index (SIGI) Data Education Women in Asia Pacific on average are more equal to men when it comes to getting an education, but this doesn't translate into equality in employment and leadership. Gender Equality Women in the Philippines have made the most progress towards gender equality over the last year. They rank third in the Index of Women's Advancement with a score of 72.9 The women in India enjoy the least amount of gender equality which was scored the lowest on the index. Safety From Threats In general, women in developed countries feel safe from threats than women in emerging countries. Women from Malaysia (64.7), Bangladesh (47.2) and South Korea (47.6) are most concerned. Employment The empowerment levels was the category where women scored the highest in the Gender Index. Which includes feeling valued at the workplace, home, and amongst friends and family.

Women in Japan scored 14.3 for leadership despite of outnumbering men at the secondary education level. 93.3 Final Comments Gender Equality is a significant problem because it is just as important as racial equality. I believe all human beings deserve to have the same opportunities in life regardless gender, color, etc. Making this infography made me realized that no country in the world can yet say that we have achieved gender equality. The only way we can tackle this issue is to get everyone involved, including men as well.This is an issue we need to be aware of. As a women, we are capable of making decisions on our own and should be able to take part of social/political decisions. Hopefully everyone would take a stand for gender equality and be able to say we have achieved gender equality with confidence.
