The Basic Indicator of Gender Inequality
(BIGI) ranks 134 countries according to their level of gender
inequality. The BIGI is an alternative to other measures of gender
inequality, such as the Global Gender Gap
Boys have some specific problems and needs
in education. For example, boys fall behind girl’s achievement from
pre-primary to university education. Boys struggle more, in
particular, with language, and also show more behavioral problems.
Although girls generally do better
than boys at school, they have specific problems. For example, girls'
self-confidence and anxiety often underestimate their actual
achievement. Girls are less likely to choose natural sciences and
technical subjects, which limits their later opportunities.
Countries with more gender parity in
income and political representation have a lower percentage of young
women graduating in the natural sciences and technical studies
(STEM). For many people this will come as a surprise. Why does this
happen and what can be done?
People who are transgender do not fit
the traditional way of looking at sex differences. This groupf of
people need to be considered in discussions about gender
equality. Modern societies are in the middle of adjusting to the needs
of this group. Challenges associated with this societal transition and
reviewing accepted notions on gender equality are discussed here.
