There Are 27 Countries Better At Gender Equality Than The U.S.

There Are 27 Countries Better At Gender Equality Than The U.S.

Quote:
Equality is supposed to be the United States' thing, but when it comes to women, the country is falling behind, according to a comprehensive global ranking of 145 countries released Wednesday evening by the World Economic Forum.

The U.S. dropped eight spots on the list to 28th place -- just above Cuba and below Mozambique -- for overall gender equality, which the World Economic Forum measures by examining publicly available data on economic participation, political empowerment, educational attainment and health measures. The Geneva-based nonprofit, known for its annual super-elite business conference in Davos, has been measuring the gap between women and men for each category for the past 10 years.
The more religion rears its ugly head, the more we go to the Dark Ages.

That's a bunch of bullshit. You guys went well out of your way to treat me like shit when I got here, complaining that I was some other girl from last year and all the stupid sexist talk. Yeah, I still haven't seen any of you treat one of the guys that way.

It is that kind of blind stupidity that causes you fools to think things like racism and sexism don't really exist, even though you are engaging in those very things.

Whatever. We'll just call you "Exhibit A" as to why the US is sitting at #28 between Cuba and Mozambique.
Thanks from LongWinded

Yeah, right. You started in from day one complaining, but all you got was the same treatment any Progressive nutter gets. Equality at its finest!

More bullshit. You and your little gaggle have some serious issues regarding women. Whatever.

There are some real men here, but they sure as hell don't agree with you or your little clique. Those real men are not afraid of strong women, and they don't treat us like crap. The rest of you are simply pathetic, like a bunch of junior high boys giggling in the locker room.

Grow up.
