Despite reductions in gender gaps in labour market outcomes over the past decades, large gaps remain, especially in middle-income countries. Globally, according to the World Bank World Development Indicators, 77 per cent of men aged 15 and older participated in the labour force in 2014, compared to 50 per cent of women. In emerging economies, the gender gap in participation rates ranged from 14 percentage points in China to more than 50 percentage points in India.
