How well does your country treat women?
The World Economic Forum published a very interesting interactive map which shows the relative disparities between men and women in health, education, economy and politics. Some countries fared better than others in its rank of women’s educational attainment or economic participation. Yet one glaring fact puts the meticulously crafted rankings into context: there is no country in the world where a woman earns as much as a man.

How was the gender gap measured? The World Economic Forum began tracking the progress of countries in 2006 and for each report, polled CEOs around the world about their employees’ salaries. Though no single measure captures the state of gender-based disparities, the rankings reveal the pace of progress in both developed and emerging economies.

According to the report, gender equality is improving worldwide, boosted by a growing involvement of women in political and economic areas.
