Gender equality leads to more Olympic medals for men, women

30 septiembre 2014

Gender equality boosts a country’s Olympic medal count for both women and men, shows a new study. Researchers compared a country’s tendency toward sexual equality with its medal counts from the London 2012 Olympic Games and the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. Countries with greater parity — particularly for measures of educational equality — had more women and men reach the podium.
