A simplified approach to measuring national gender inequality

The Global Gender Gap Index is one of the best-known measures of national gender inequality, used by both academics and policy makers. We argue that that this measure has a number of problems and introduce a simpler measure of national levels of gender inequality. Our proposed measure is based on sex differences in the opportunity to lead a long healthy and satisfied life that is grounded on educational opportunities. The measure better captures variation in gender inequality than other measures, with inclusion of outcomes that can be favorable or unfavorable to either sex, not simply unfavorable to women. We focus on some of the most basic measures available for 134 countries from 2012–2016 (i.e., disadvantages in children’s basic education, life satisfaction, and healthy life span) and we relate these to various measures, including the United Nations' Human Development Index. We found that low levels of human development are typically associated with disadvantages for girls and women, while medium and high levels of development are typically associated with disadvantages for boys and men. Countries with the highest levels of human development are closest to gender parity, albeit typically with a slight advantage for women. We argue that the disparities, when they are found, are related to the sexual division of labor (i.e., traditional gender roles) in poorly developed countries as well as the underinvestment in preventative health care in more developed nations.

Never heard of it. Is this like Wikipedia, or do they occasionally get some "facts" right?

I'm all for women's rights but you wonder how far the pendulum swings. Divorce and some poor legal judgements has made a massive negative impact on the West, I can see where the whole MenRights, RedPill movemnets were born or MGTOW

No, it's an actual peer-reviewed scientific publication. It doesn't have the Big Name that Nature and Science and JAMA have; but still credible.


What they did was look at different criteria than pay-differential/ representation in politics, and focused on healthy lifespan, health, and happiness. What they found was that men liver shorter, sicker, more miserable lives (and commit suicide way more often).

This may have to do with the way [some? most?] men view the world: Several men that I know have basically said that when they enter a room full of people, the first thing they do is size up the other males to determine who they could take and who could take them. It seems unnecessarily aggressive and competitive ... like living with a subclinical case of PTSD ... and could be the source of much stress, unhappiness, and poor health. But that just may be the way most men respond. There may not be much can be done about that.
