Nordic countries top gender gap index again

Nordic countries top gender gap index again

Women trail men in economic and political power, but the Nordic countries come closest to closing the gender gap, according to a World Economic Forum survey.
The four Nordic countries have topped the Global Gender Gap Index since it was first released in 2006 by the Geneva-based group. They did so again this year, but Iceland replaced Norway in the No. 1 position. Finland was second; Norway, third; and Sweden, fourth.
Two African countries _ South Africa and Lesotho _ entered the list of the top 10 countries for the first time, according to the survey of 134 countries released Tuesday.
At the bottom of the list were Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Benin, Pakistan, Chad and Yemen.
