Nothing really surprising to me...
I really want to visit Sweden and Finland, seems like a serene utopia... I could only take the weather for so long though. :p

Really? :unsure:

Serbia at 145 below countries where women can't even vote must be a mistake. I'm not sure I trust Rwanda being ranked higher than Spain or Italy, either, or countries like Germany or Hungary being ranked so low. Plus, given that they don't constitute what statistics have made up this list make me think it's a bit dubious.

Sorry, should specified more. :p I was referring to more of the top 20ish, particularly the Scandinavian countries.

I hope the Irish feminazis don't see this, we are on par with Albania and China which I don't mind but I'm sure they'll bitch about it forever :rolleyes: They already bitch about how hard done by they allegedly are.

I agree that Serbia being so low looks ridiculous.

I'd much rather be a woman in Serbia than Kenya, which is ranked higher. Rape statistics, women's safety, wasn't taken into account when making this list.

I was surprise by many of these. Then I saw "Newsweek/The Daily Beast analyzed dozens of data points for 165 countries " which made me chuckle.

this list = load of crap. i can't imagina austria being behind rwanda or kyrghyzstan.

also, looking at serbia's scores, isn't overall score supposed to be the mean value of the other 5? how can overall score be lower than any of them? :scratch:

Apart from showing the world that you're a Rush Limbaugh's peom, what do you mean by the term "feminazi"?

Yes, that's why I quoted the part with Djibouti and Serbia. It makes no sense.

Other interesting numbers.

Economics:
Germany :78.2
Albania: 82.4
Republic of Macedonia: 83.4
Luxembourg: 75.6
Italy: 62.7
Bulgaria: 76.5
Austria: 72.00

Those numbers are so random. :lol:

perhaps the message is that in albania, macedonia and bulgaira there is equality in poverty between men and women while there is lack of equality in wealth between genders in germany, luxembourg, italy and austria :confused: or something.

The bunch of middle aged prudes who sit on the National Women's Council and bitch about the Girls of Ryanair Calendar and the Hunky Dory Advert every year :rolleyes:

I thought about that in the first moment too. But, that's also pretty impossible. Women must be very educated and dedicated to their careers in order to get the economical independence. The birth rate in Albania in the last century was simply crazy. If you have 5 children, it's highly unlikely to have a big career. Or... maybe some superwomen live there. :shrug:

I don't trust this :lol:
No way Serbia should be that low :lol:

And LOL at Moldova, Albania, FYROM, etc. being top 15/top 20 and ahead of Germany and Italy :rolls:

Isn't Moldova the poorest country in Europe or something? And I doubt Albania, FYROM, etc. are much better either :lol:

Why is Australia's politics ranking so low? Our priminister is Australian. Queensland premier is a woman, NSW premier has just recently been female. Also the federal cabinet is made up of around 4 or 5 women.
