This paper strives to determine the reasons there are gender gaps in education, health, politics and economic outcomes globally. The findings imply that inequality as defined by the Gender Gap Index is reduced through policies that increase female representation within the public sector management and administration and one of the key indicators of this index is economic. The data used did not show universal experiences of women. The article proves that increase women's representation in politics will lower inequality and have stated that as a policy recommendation.
