Where’s the best place to be a woman?

Where’s the best place to be a woman? | Global poitics paul's page | Scoop.it

For five years in a row, Iceland has been rated the country with the world's smallest gender gap by the World Economic Forum (WEF).

 

The rating means Iceland is the country where women enjoy the most equal access to education and healthcare. It is also where women are most likely to be able to participate fully in the country's political and economic life.

 

Iceland is joined at the top of the The Global Gender Gap Report, 2013 by its Nordic neighbours Finland, Norway and Sweden.

One thing I think is fascinating about this survey is that it reveals that not one of the G20 group of leading industrial nations appear in the top ten. Industrial development is clearly not a good indicator for what is surely the most important measure of genuine development - equality.

 

For example, Lesotho is a rather poor and 'underdeveloped' country: about 40% live below the International Poverty Line, and it ranks 158th on the Human Development Index (although the excessivly high level of HIV/AIDS may skew the overall figures) - yet it comes in at 16: two places higher than the UK; seven above the USA; and 29 above France.

 

Bhutan, with it's National Happiness Index, comes in at 93 - so maybe the men are happier than the women.

One really does have to laugh at these stupid, stupid men - but they do so much harm that is nowhere near close to funny.
