The Government is pleased about France’s new ranking in the World Economic Forum's Global Gender Gap Report 2014: in the space of one year, our country has moved up from 45th place to 16th place in the ranking.

This result reflects the remarkable progress made in France in this field. France remains the leader in the health and education rankings. It is ranked 4th in terms of women’s access to ministerial positions. France’s new place in the World Economic Forum ranking demonstrates the effectiveness of public policies conducted over the past two and a half years to improve women’s rights in our society.

“Yes, women’s rights have become a priority once again since 2012” tweeted Najat Vallaud-Belkacem. Marisol Touraine and Pascale Boistard are determined to pursue and expand this policy, in particular in terms of gender equality in the workplace and equal pay.
