gender gap chloropleth
Chris Plummer's curator insight, January 29, 2015 8:30 AM

Summary- This map shows the equality of genders through their economic participation,  health, and access to education. In many poorer places you can see there is a much greater gender gap than in places like scandinavia where there isn't much of a gap at all. I


Insight- In Unit 3 one of the main subjects was gender. This chloropleth map shows the relationship between states and their equality among genders. It is easy to tell that in most undeveloped countries there is a much larger gender gap than more developed ones.

This article shows gender inequality index by the map and information displaying how gender inequality is located more in developing countries. And gender equality is placed in developed countries.

This article is about how important women are to the economy. It says that we are part of the reason the economy works the way it does.

Unsurprisingly, developing countries with strict rules for women's roles in society scored lowest in all of the indexes. Notably most countries in Africa and the Middle East. Many countries in Asia, Central and South America were low scoring as well.  The evidence has been pretty irrefutable for decades now: given the opportunity, women will lift up not only themselves but those around them as well.
