Cyprus has moved up one place and now ranks 21 on the Gender Equality Index of the European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE), based on figures for the years 2021-2022.

According to the Office of the Commissioner for Gender Equality, Cyprus' highest ranking (10th among all member states) is in the field of Knowledge, in which it scores 65.5 points, an increase of 7.7 points since 2020.

It said there is more room for improvement in the areas of power and work. The Gender Equality Index, which is published annually, is an important tool in the effort to further improve gender equality issues, it said adding that while progress has been made on Gender Equality issues, there is still a long way to go in the fight against inequalities and substantive equality in Cyprus.
