Women's rights country by country - interactive

Post by HEPZIBAH » Tue Feb 04, 2014 1:12 pm

From the Guardian:
Women's rights country by country - interactive
Which countries have laws preventing violence? Which legislate for gender equality? And which countries allow abortion? Using World Bank and UN data we offer a snapshot of women's rights across the globe. Select a region and hover over a country to see how it has legislated for violence, harassment, abortion, property and employment rights, discrimination and equality. Click on a country to tweet a message on the figures. Country data can be viewed in relation to its population size and those of its neighbouring states.

For the record - Hepzibah didn't actually write the above - it is a quote from the article.

I think the formation of an actual "law" pertaining to humanitarian issues facing men/women/children that passes legislatively reflecting the will of the people is a marker of the social evolution of that particular country. The circle graph is an interesting comparison of countries.
