Russia Ranked 61st in Global Gender Ineguality Rating

Russia ranked a modest 61st of 136 world economies on gender inequality in a new global study unveiled on Friday, largely due to a wage gap and lack of political representation for women.

      However, Russia was placed higher than China, Turkey and Japan in the Global Gender Gap Report 2013 by the Geneva-based World Economic Forum.

      But Russia was bested by Uganda, Moldova and Kazakhstan in the study by the group, best known for holding an annual meeting of global political and business elites in Davos.

      Russia did well on most economic and educational criteria used in the study, published annually since 2006. But its score was held down by wage inequality, on which Russia was 83rd, and political empowerment (94th).
