A new OECD report, The Pursuit of Gender Equality: An Uphill Battle, analyses what progress countries have made – or not – over the past five years in reaching gender equality goals in areas including education, employment and entrepreneurship.
The report will be published at 11.00 a.m. Paris time/CEST (09.00 a.m. GMT) on Wednesday 4 October 2017.
