Bahrain's overall gender balance index increased to 69%

Bahrain’s overall gender balance index for the years 2019-2020 increased to 69%, up from 65% during the period running from 2017 until 2018. The gender balance also jumped from 70% to 73% in key national development areas and from 59% to 65% during the same period on the institutional index.

The positive shifts were featured in the National Gender Balance Report (2019-2020), which was compiled by the Supreme Council for Women (SCW). The National Gender Balance Report relies on two basic dimensions that include several areas and indicators to measure the progress made to bridge the gaps between women and men in national development. The first dimension takes into account six core areas – economic participation, decision-making, education, health, social stability and civil society.
