Norway Ranks Highest on List of Best Countries to be a Woman in 2019


The Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security, has released its annual ‘Women, Peace, and Security Index’ which names the best countries to be a woman. ⁣

The index provides important insights into patterns and progress on women’s well-being and empowerment around the world. ⁣

It reflects a shared vision that countries are more peaceful and prosperous when women are accorded full and equal rights and opportunities.⁣

The WPS Index incorporates three basic dimensions of women’s well-being—inclusion (economic, social, politi- cal); justice (formal laws and informal discrimination); and security (at the family, community, and societal levels)— which are captured and quantified through 11 indicators. ⁣
The indicators are aggregated at the national level to create a global ranking of 167 countries.⁣

Norway ranked highest followed closely by Switzerland. Yemen and Afghanistan ranked lowest on the list. Nigeria ranked 145, Rwanda 65, Ghana 78, Kenya 98, Zimbabwe 74.
