Gender equality remains a critical issue, impacting all spheres of society, including corporate leadership, political representation, and participation in cultural production. While personal stories offer a powerful source of information and inspiration, the issue can also be analysed through the lens of data.


The data on gender split and equality comes mainly from our Countries, Politicians, Companies, and Artists datasets, and originates from open data sources such as the UN, World Bank, MoMA, Tate or Harvard University Dataverse. When you open a dataset or view data on a chart or a map, you can always everything back to specific sources.

Data Usage

You can explore the gender distribution among CEOs of public companies, world leaders, and political parties to gain insight into the representation of gender in positions of power and influence. Additionally, demographic data about countries, continents, and regions offers perspectives on the population makeup across different geographies. The gender split of artists as seen through museum collections and the number of artworks exhibited helps create a full picture of female participation in high art through the centuries. You can easily access, visualise, and analyse data to inform study and work projects such as

  • Assessing the representation of gender in leadership roles across various economic sectors;
  • Analysing demographic trends and disparities in gender proportions globally;
  • Exploring cultural dynamics and the representation of gender within the arts and cultural institutions.
