Statistics and reports

Gender Equality has been one of the EC top priority over the last few years. Data and reports can be found on the Web site of the EIGE (« European Institute for Gender Equality ») : http://www.eige.europa.eu/

The ever lasting low percentage of women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) careers is a focus for the EC : related statistics, « She figures », are published on an annual basis. To find the latest publication: http://ec.europa.eu/research/scienc

For worldwide comparisons, the “Gender Gap Report”, an annual publication from The World Economic Forum, is the reference.

In France, the « Ministère du Droit des Femmes » (http://femmes.gouv.fr/) also issues an annual report : « Les chiffres clés de l’égalité entre les femmes et les hommes ».
