The world is far from equal for men and women

All of this gets to a big problem the world still very clearly sees today: Women are still far from equal in just about any place in the world.

The World Economic Forum ranks 145 countries on women's equality on a scale of 0 (no equality) to 1 (full equality). The highest score of all is Iceland, clocking in at 0.881 — not bad, but not fully equal. The US is 28th, with a score of 0.740. Last is Yemen at 0.484.

The score is based on many factors: how many women participate in the workforce, how well women are paid compared with men, health and educational outcomes, and political empowerment and representation in government. Some countries fare better than others, but none is deemed fully equal under these metrics.
