Big Think’s Global Index of Women’s Power
Above, map of Big Think’s Global Index of Women’s Power.
While in many parts of the world today women enjoy greater power and opportunity than ever before, there are also places where women remain essentially powerless, lacking access to even basic education or human rights.
In consultation with leading universities and research groups, Big Think has created a composite country-by-country index built on a range of recent international studies to indicate where women are comparatively more and less empowered across the globe. Based on methodical analysis, Big Think’s Global Index of Women’s Power provides each nation with a numerical Power Quotient. Yemen, the country where women have the least power according to the survey, got a score of 24.02 on our scale. Meanwhile Norway, which got a score of 88.75, is the country where women comparatively have the most power.
For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you. Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
