You ask the question "So are we Sri Lankan women more prosperous and hold more equal position at the workplace than the Sheila’s in Oz?" The answer is NO. There is no comparison between the women in the workforce in Sri Lanka and Oz. The majority of women in the work force in SL are in poverty based jobs -plucking tea, working in garment factories and living away from home or literally in slavery in the middle east. My heart bleeds for these sisters. Global Gender Gap Index fails to see these glaring inequalities which even Blind Freddie can see.
