Trends in Global Gender Inequality

Archived Abstract of Former PSC Researcher

Dorius, Shawn F., and Glenn Firebaugh. 2010. "Trends in Global Gender Inequality." Social Forces, 88(5): 1941-1968.

This study investigates trends in gender inequality throughout the world. Using data encompassing a large majority of the world's population, we examine trends in recent decades for key indicators of gender inequality in education, mortality, political representation and economic activity. We find that gender inequality is declining in virtually all major domains, that the decline is occurring across diverse religious and cultural traditions, and that population growth is slowing the decline because populations are growing faster in countries where there is the greatest gender inequality.
