Study: Women Still Unequal to Men in SA

Study finds that South African women still do not enjoy equality with men

South African women still do not enjoy equality with men, although the situation is slowly improving, according to a study compiled by Mastercard Worldwide.

In a press statement, Mastercard Worldwide president, Philip Panaino, states that "While there are still significant inequalities between men and women, it is encouraging to see that the overall index score has improved year-on-year since 2010, signifying increasing socio-economic equality between men and women."

The study found that the overall index score for the socio-economic equality of women in 2012 was 74.7, a small improvement from the 74.4 reported in 2011.
