The World Economic Forum recently released its annual gender gap report, which examines gender equality all over the world. It’s pretty interesting: the top four countries with the smallest gender gap are Nordic, unsurprisingly; Denmark is #7; the United States is #27. Yemen comes in last.
The report looks at four broad categories: economic participation and opportunity, education attainment, health and survival, and political empowerment. The WEF, which is based in Geneva (Switzerland is #14), noted that while there has been overall improvement in three of the four categories, the gap in healthcare for men and women has widened in the last year.
