Where is the best place to live if you’re a woman?

February 1, 2010

What do Iceland, Jamaica, Slovakia and the Maldives have in common?  They are among the countries with the highest possible ranking in educational attainment for women in the Global Gender Gap Report 2009 recently released by the World Economic Forum.  This is just one of many sources of pertinent info that can be found on wikigender,  a site started by the OECD Development Centre to facilitate exchange and improve knowledge on gender equality-related issues around the world.

Have we really made progress in closing the gender gap?  How do countries compare in women’s economic participation and opportunity, educational attainment, political empowerment, health and survival?  Have a look at the report and send us your reactions.  You can post them to the blog or send directly to Tracey.Strange@oecd.org
