Coach-less Galatasaray faces Antalya and Eto’o

A recent report by the World Economic Forum (WEF) has placed Turkey at 130th out of 145 countries in gender inequality in terms of health, education, business life, economics and politics.
The 10th edition of the Global Gender Gap Report, published on Thursday, measured 145 countries on the gap between men and women and reported that there is little equality between men and women in Turkey. Turkey fell five places compared to the surveyand’s 2014 figures.
The survey evaluated countries on a variety of criteria, including women entering the workforce and wage inequalities. Turkey was ranked at 131st in labor force participation of women and 82nd in wage equality for similar work.
According to the report, the global gender gap in terms of health, education, economic opportunity and politics has closed by only 4 percent in the past 10 years, with the economic gap closing by just 3 percent, while the figures relating to Turkey show that the countryand’s efforts to overcome inequality between men and women are far from adequate.
Turkey ranked 109th in terms of women serving as legislators, senior officials and managers in business life, with 87 percent of those holding key positions in professional life consisting of men. Female representation in the Turkish Parliament is also very low, with only 18 percent of Turkish deputies being women. In addition, only 4 percent of ministerial positions are occupied by women, putting Turkey at 139th position in this category.
Countries from Europe occupy 14 of the top 20 positions in the index, two more than last year. Of the regionand’s major economies, Germany and France both climb one place while the United Kingdomand’s eight-place rise, which returns it to the same position it held in 2013, can be explained by its improved performance in areas of economics, health and politics.
Belgium and Denmark have regressed while Estonia and Slovenia have experienced the most gains in Europe. The lowest performing countries from Europe are Malta (104), Armenia (105) and Turkey, which lost five places despite a slight score increase because other countries have improved more.
Nordic countries still dominate the index, with Ireland the highest placed non-Nordic country, ranking fifth. Rwanda (6), Philippines (7) and New Zealand (10) are the only non-European countries in the top 10, while the United States fell eight places to 28th.
