Thefull reportcontains 850,000 data points on women's health, education, and political and economic empowerment, but the big takeaway, as described by TIME Magazine, is that"women have taken two steps forward, one step back."In the run-up to the report's release, women's photographs weretemporarily removed from billboards and magazine coversto highlight the fact that we're"not there yet"- full equality is still a ways away.
