Egypt moved up four spots in the Global Gender Gap report as it ranked 132 out of 144 instead of 136 in 2015.

The report, which was published by the World Economic Forum last week, explores the magnitude of gender disparities across four indices: Economic participation and opportunity, educational attainment, health and survival and political empowerment.

It indicated that Egypt was able to narrow the gap between males and females across all four indices compared to 2015 as opposed to 2006.

The highest leap was in the political empowerment index, which showed that Egypt was placed at 115 instead of 136 in 2015.

On the educational attainment and economic participation and opportunity indices, Egypt moved forward three spots on each while it only moved two  spots on and the health and survival index compared to 2015.

Egypt recorded lower gender disparity across the four indices in 2006 and had an overall rank of 115.
