Women Work 39 Days More Per Year Than Men

When was the last time you took a day off? According to the latest World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report, women around the world work an average of 39 days per year more than men do. That breaks down to a full 50 minutes more per day. The report also revealed that women currently have access to only 59 percent of the economic advantages enjoyed by men. This figure is at its lowest since 2008 and current trends suggest it will take another 170 years before there is global equality of the sexes.The report’s authors point to “chronic imbalances” in labor force participation and salaries as key drivers of the disappointing results.
