Women have also had to spend more time at home to take care of children with a decline in childcare support from the state. The share of women in corporate leadership is above the global average but is growing slowly. 
Excerpt “the gender gap in labor force participation rates in China has risen from 9.4 percentage points in 1990 to 14.1 percentage points in 2020”
