This year International Women's Day theme - Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50-50 by 2030 - is putting the spotlight on the gender pay gap, which has slid backwards in terms of progress: According to World Economic Forum's 2016 Global Gender Gap Index, South Asia is projected to close their gender gap in 46 years, Western Europe in 61 years, Latin America in 72 years and Sub-Saharan Africa in 79 years.
