In case you haven't realized, not all countries are exactly friendly when it comes to women's rights. But this latest report will give an idea on which places won't punish you simply for being born female.
The report via Save The Children examines the overall status of women in
the 165 countries that comprise the majority of the developing world.
Among the factors taken into account are economic/compensation data,
percentage of women in government, percentage of modern contraceptive
use, education and life expectancy at birth.
Overall, the developed countries that scored the most brownie points in the female-friendly department are Scandinavia, Norway, New Zealand, Australia, Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Sweden, the Netherlands, Ireland, Belgium, the UK, Slovenia, Portugal, Spain, France, Germany, Canada and Estonia. Meanwhile, Bhutan, the top-ranked in "Least Developed," places 31% of women as using modern contraception, and Somalia, which ranks the very last, sees women spending an average of two years in school with a life expectancy of 53.
