Swiss gender quality scale
According to a survey of the World Economic Forum, after being at the 40th place, Switzerland succeeded in gaining the 14th place on the gender quality scale, Norway occupying the 1st. If this progress looks significantly positive, nevertheless it is mainly due to an increased representation of women in parliament and the government, as well to educational achievement, health and survival. On the economic area, differences in salaries and positions indicate that women still haven’t reached parity with their male peers.
