Move over Norway: Gender equality makes gains in unexpected places.
The gender gap has narrowed in 105 countries over the last decade, according to a new report from the World Economic Forum. But three nations stand out in a mostly Nordic top 10.
Top 10 overview
The Global Gender Gap Report, published Tuesday by the WEF, measures the global gender gap of 142 countries. It looks at the relative gaps between men and women across four key areas: education, economics, health, and politics.
While the five Nordic countries consistently rank highly on most global indicators, from the Human Development Index to the Global Competitiveness Report, the same isn't true for Nicaragua (6th), Rwanda (7th), and the Philippines (9th), which rarely make the top 50.
