WPL Country Award
Based on the annual ranking of the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report and the Inter-Parliamentary Union‘s ranking of Women in Politics, the WPL Country Awards acknowledge countries for their political empowerment of women, and countries which show regional leadership in closing the gap between women and men in politics. The aim is to inspire other countries to lead by the same example. The Index featured in the Global Gender Gap Report assesses 135 countries, representing more than 93% of the world’s population, on how well resources and opportunities are divided among male and female populations.
