Australia has a lot to learn when it comes to closing the gender gap.
We could start by taking a look at what's going on in the Nordic region and even in our own backyard in New Zealand and the Philippines. According to a new report from the World Economic Forum, Australia is not even in the top 20 when it comes to closing the gap between men and women. We're ranked 25 on the list, a dubious honour when you consider that Australia's actually gone backwards. We were 15 in 2006 when the report was first undertaken, 23 in 2011 and 2010, 20 in 2009, 21 in 2008 and 17 in 2007.
