Women in the labor force, 2018 

Source: International Labor Organization, 


ILO data enable the skill levels of working women to be compared with the revenue of the country concerned. The graph only shows the distribution of women in the jobs market according to their skill level; men are not represented. In countries with low revenue, women rarely occupy posts in the intellectual professions or in management, representing under 3%, while men occupy double that number (this is not shown in the graph). Conversely, in countries with high revenue, almost 40% of women do jobs demanding high levels of skill, outdoing men (37% of men occupy these posts).
