This article suggests that things are improving....mostly...but there's still a ways to go to reach gender equality. Finland comes out top as the best country for working women, followed by fellow Nordic nations Norway and Sweden.
These countries score highly in most categories and take the top spots in labor-force participation. Over the past decade not a single country has achieved gender equality.
Sadly, Germany, Australia, the U.S., UK, and Switzerland are below average! Out of 109 nations covered by the Global Gender Gap Report, 104 have improved their performance, but in five nations the gender gap has actually widened.
The World Economic Forum's Global Gender Gap Report has measured the wage difference between women and men for 10 years, and the 2015 edition highlights women’s progress towards equality over the past decade. Since 2006, an extra quarter of a billion women have entered the workforce, and the number of female politicians is rising in many countries. But it's not all good news: the report also shows how much work is required before the world achieves gender equality.
