Women representatives in the judiciary, legislative and women and girls at schools and in the work market

According to the UN, there was a significant rise in the number of girls enrolled in primary schools, maternal mortality dropped, and the systemic protection against discrimination and violence became better. There are 21 female presidents and prime ministers in the world – around twice as many as 25 years ago. Since 1995 the percentage of women in legislative bodies doubled as well, to around a quarter now.

During that period, the proportion of women in the work market fell. Almost one-third of those between 15 and 24 do not learn, work, or participate in training. Less than one-sixth of men have a similar problem. The UN report from 2019 states that over 2.5 billion women and girls live in the countries in which men have legal privileges exceeding those of women, like in case of divorce or inheritance.

A record 298 women will participate in this year’s race for the House of Representatives, as reported by the Center for American Women and Politics. One hundred seventeen of them – another unprecedented number – are women of color. Female candidates count for almost 50% of the Democratic party nominees.

In India, there never was a woman as chief of justice, and only two out of 34 judges of the supreme court are women. The situation isn’t better in the country’s high courts with 78 out of 1078 female judges. Data was gathered by Smashboard, a non-profit organization fighting sexism.
