Volume:

The World's Women 2010: Trends and Statistics presents statistics and analysis on the status of women and men in the world, highlighting the current situation and changes over time. It was prepared to coincide with and in observance of the first-ever World Statistics Day, 20.10.2010. The report is the fifth in the series which has been published every five years, as called for in the Beijing Platform for Action adopted at the Fourth World Conference on Women in 1995. As in the past editions, the presentation is made in a format and language that non-specialists can readily understand.
The World's Women 2010 reveals that progress towards the goal of gender equality has been made in the last two decades in a number of areas, although uneven and, for the most part, quite modest. In some areas it is clear that there is a long way to go before gender equality is achieved. These are elaborated in the following eight chapters of the report, each representing a broad area of concern: population and families, health, education, work, power and decision-making, violence against women, environment and poverty. A wide selection of the statistics and indicators at the country level are presented in the Statistical Annex of the report.
