Even in countries with a relatively small gender gap there might be large inequalities. In many of the countries with a very small female disadvantage (or even with a small female advantage) the gaps between outcomes for the rich and the poor can be very large. Moreover, in some countries wealth and gender interact to create a very large female disadvantage among the poorest in society (for example in India). This study highlights the necessity to consider wealth and gender gaps simultaneously.
