Issues surrounding gender equality, or rather the lack of it, are being debated at the World Economic Forum in Davos. DW's Ben Fajzullin talks to SAP executive board member Adaire Fox-Martin.
Few would argue that this is still a men's world, in which women are often denied equal opportunities. A report by the World Economic Forum is now providing fresh evidence for that, but also sees some progress.
The World Economic Forum warned of women's declining participation in politics, unequal access to health and education. Germany was ranked 14th in gender wage equality, while the US slid to 51st.
The share of women participating in the World Economic Forum in Davos has never been bigger, and numerous topics are scheduled to address the situation of women. Does this come on the back of the #MeToo debate?
The World Economic Forum has said that it will take 217 years until women have equal pay and representation in the workplace. It's the second year that the organization has recorded worsening economic inequality.
