Worldwide, gender discrimination is a major issue in several countries.
According to the World Economic Forum's 2021 Global Gender Gap Report, it would take the world about 136 years to achieve gender equality. So it does not come as a surprise that realizing equality at the workplace will take nearly 268 years.
The report also suggests that the pandemic has pushed back gender parity by an entire generation.
As the COVID-19 situation becomes worse, the International Labor Organization said 5 percent of all employed women have lost their jobs during the pandemic, as compared to 3.9 percent of all employed men.
