What is the purpose of the Life-course gender gap dashboard? What does it measure?

Life-course gender gap dashboard, from a life-course perspective, assesses country’s overall achievements on gender equality and the empowerment of girls and women. It contains a selection of indicators that indicate gender gaps and women’s empowerment over the life course—childhood and youth, adulthood and older age. The indicators refer to health, education, labour market and work, leadership, seats in parliament and social protection at different stages of life. Some indicators are presented only for women, and others are presented as a ratio of female to male values.
