UN report: Turkey performs poorly in education, women’s rights

PanARMENIAN.Net - Turkey is performing poorly in terms of education quality and the rate of women’s employment, according to the United Nations’ annual Human Development Report, which was released on November 1.

Turkey, ultimately, finished 97 out of 187 countries listed on the human development index, which also addressed urgent global challenges such as sustainability and equity.

The human development index also highlighted Turkey’s low level of female employment and comparatively poor maternal mortality rate.

Some 27 percent of adult women have a secondary or higher level of education compared to 46.7 percent of their male counterparts, the report said. Some 24 percent of Turkish women work, the report said, noting that this figure was 59.5 percent in Azerbaijan.

According to the report, 23 of 100,000 women die from pregnancy-related causes, Hurriyet Daily News reported.
