The position of Chinese women has worsened over the a year ago, according to the 2017 Global Gender Gap Report, released Wednesday by the World Economic Forum (WEF). It has successfully closed more than 87% of its overall gender gap, the report revealed.
After improving its ranking in the same gender gap index past year, the country has slipped 21 spaces from its 87th position in 2016 to land at 108. Women in the United States do find parity with men in educational attainment and get close on metrics of health and survival.
China slipped a notch to 100th and "remains the world's lowest-ranked country with regard to the gender gap in its sex ratio", it said. This retreat backwards means that, at the current rate of progress, the global gender gap would take 100 years to disappear entirely, compared to 83 last year.

However, at the current rate of progress, the gender gap will take almost 100 years to bridge, WEF said.
The further away the score is from 0, the higher the "distance to parity" in the country for that sub index appears to be. They included the region's top economies, including China, Japan, India and South Korea.
About 23 per cent of the political gap has been closed, which is unchanged since past year against a long-term trend of slow but steady improvement. "Also, keeping in mind all the reforms happening at the moment, next year's report results seem to be even more promising".
"In 2017, we should not be seeing progress towards gender parity shift into reverse", Saadia Zahidi, WEF head of education, gender and work, said.
