Ukraine ranked 64th for gender equality

April 14, 2013

There has been so much written on gender equality over the years I am not going to attempt to write anything that would be meaningful, thoughtful or new.

Suffice to say, Ukraine has just been ranked 64th globally when it comes to gender equality – drawing this response from Natalia Korolevska, the Ukrainian Minister for Social Policy.

It is difficult to disagree with anything she said.

Perhaps most poignant is this, “But if this programme remains solely a framework document, where it is written that we are all for good and against bad things, that we will hold round table meetings and let women go first, then it all would not be enough for our country to ensure the empowerment of women.”  – which as regular readers will know is a major criticism of mine regarding every government Ukraine has ever had – Ineffective implementation!
