Women are becoming more influential on the world stage, and they’re still getting the lion’s share of the credit, according to a new report from the United Nations.
The report, titled “A Vision for Gender Equality in Aviation,” says women in aviation have an average net worth of $6.5 billion, while men have an estimated $5.4 billion.
The disparity is most pronounced among women, who have a median net worth for aviation of $3.9 billion.
The gender gap in net worth is even greater among men, who are valued at $8.3 billion, according the report.
The U.N. also found that women are more likely to own businesses and hold top-ranking positions in government and the private sector.
Women in the private-sector earn about 75 percent of what men do.
But the report also said that women’s advancement in technology has been slow, and that the gender gap is growing.
It says that the global economy has grown by just 2.3 percent since 2010, compared with a 3.6 percent increase for men.
