It's funny the RoC considers itself ranked 6th. Funny because anyone who knows anything about Taiwan and its culture, knows that females are relegated to a lower social class and far more "sexualised" and relegated to being objectified that way. It's hard to measure these things but it is definite that mainland's tidbits and remnants of socialist mindsets, both in Marxist and Trotskyist derived atitudes, may have been partially responsible for whatever improvements in overall gender equality, Taiwan is thoroughly old world in every way except surface cosmetics. This is both a good and bad thing depending on personal beliefs but it's still hilarious they rank themselves at 6th. Maybe in workplace representation and income metrics and similar things like that but I know for a fact that even these two things are entirely untrue, so makes one wonder on what basis they rank themselves so highly. Women are expected to go into certain fields and almost definitely earn much less than male counterparts in Taiwan. It's not horrible, but it ain't 6th.
This goes into a bit more detail:
There's more here in both English and Taiwanese Mandarin:
I've personally had quite a few East Asian women complain about the treatment they receive in their societies. The one that really surprised me was Chinese. She complained that her sexual market worth was close to worthless in China: late 20s, pretty hot in my opinion and from a upper middle class family. I was surprised that she described her plight in such Darwinian terms and even more so that Chinese guys would actually pass up on her.
