East Asia and Pacific: Gender

Progress on gender issues in the East Asia and Pacific region varies widely depending on context. In middle-income and emerging middle income countries, women are significantly integrated into the workforce. In the poorest countries and most fragile states, the disparity between women and men in economic and health areas remains high.

Across all countries in the region, women's voices in formal decision-making remain weak.
