With U.S. President Donald Trump and other leaders from the political, corporate and academic spheres attending the 2018 annual economic gathering in Davos, Switzerland, here's a look at the organisation's U.S.-centric take on the global gender gap. It doesn't answer its own question - why are women paid less than men? - and it ends with another question, essentially, How much longer can it take?, but it does present some scary figures about the under-valuing of women. In terms of GDP, of course. Meanwhile in the outside world, debates continue over re-revaluation of the entire labour market, and how valuable GDP really is these days, not to mention the fundamental relationship between men and women.

Keywords: Global Gender Gap, Davos 2018, why are women paid less than men, global economy, women's value to GDP
