Type your country into the search box to find out how it ranks for gender equality. The figures are based on the World Economic Forum (WEF)’s annual Global Gender Gap report, which measures countries according to where women are more likely to be able to participate fully in political and economic life and enjoy the most equal access to education and healthcare.
To produce the global gender gap index, the World Economic Forum analyses more than a dozen datasets relating to economic participation and opportunity, educational attainment, health and survival and political empowerment.
The rankings are compiled by calculating gender-based gaps in access to resources and opportunities within each country. This enables the index to compare rich and poor countries on an equal footing.
This year’s report is the 10th produced by the Forum and covers 145 countries.
Data on the gender pay gap is from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). The figure for each country is the latest available and ranges from 2010-13.
The OECD calculates the gender pay gap as the difference between median earnings of men and women relative to median earnings of men. The figures are calculated based on full time workers only.
Data on the proportion of university graduates that are female is from the Unesco Institute of Statistics.
Note: The data for the share of government ministers in Canada that are women was calculated before November’s change of government.
I can tell from reading recent comments that there are some new members of the blog who are still lying to themselves. They may be putting on a strong front to everyone on the blog and to people who know them; saying they have been no contact for how ever many weeks, even though it is killing them they will NOT let the N treat them with disrespect any longer.
Maybe they are meeting the N for some reason and plan on being strong or perhaps they have come up with some excuse to need the narcissist for some problem that only the narcissist can help with. They are telling everyone who will listen that this time you mean it, you will not be going back, he went too far this time.
But if they are honest, there is this tiny part (or large part of them) that is secretly…

WASHINGTON (AFP) – The encrypted communications firm Silent Circle said Thursday it was tightening access to its mobile apps and secure smartphone to make them harder for terrorists and criminals to use.The company which makes the encrypted Blackphone handset and Silent Phone applications for private messaging said it took the steps after learning that it had been recommended by the Islamic State group which has claimed credit for the deadly attacks in the French capital.

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – European Union interior ministers are to agree on Friday to tighten checks at the external borders of the passport-free Schengen area to boost security after the attacks in Paris that killed 129 people, a draft document seen by Reuters shows.

Check out the interview via WANDtv.com concerning the trauma & statutes in Illinois, which I’ve personally addressed with House Rep Jay Hoffman, States Attorney Brendan Kelly, U.S. Attorney’s Office, and even Congressman John Shimkus. However, no matter what I’ve researched through CDC, National Inst. of Mental Health, National Child Traumatic Stress Network, even PTSD.va.gov; we still do NOT have the attention or the support in updating Illinois or Federal Statutes to give children who are suffering today a chance to heal, grow up, understand what actually happened in all the ugly violence of what family members have manipulated, threatened, or forced them to endure.
Yes, it happens every single day right here in Illinois and across the country. I can prove to the readers here, as I have proven to all those listed above; 1 in 3 children are suffering in some…
