Maahika Singh is currently studying Geography at UCL. She used The Gender Index for her module and says:
“One of my modules is learning how to use all the qualitative and quantitative methods. My topic was women in finance and my project was specifically on how mobility of women impacts workplace productivity and how that results in differentials and outcomes in happiness.
I used The Gender Index for contextual literature needed for my project. We have a lot of resources at UCL but not every university has those same resources. So I like that The Gender Index was free to access and very easy to use. It was really helpful using the maps and really easy to navigate. Plus, it’s free to download.
The data is comprehensive and the categories were really useful. I definitely recommend it. It’s really important data: Women are 50% of the population and we just accept the workplace inequalities. You’d think it would be common knowledge about the gender gap.
We need data to make changes in government policy - if we don’t have the data then researchers can’t do the research, politicians can’t create policy and companies can’t change their norms because we don’t know what the problem is.”
