Best and worst countries for women

(According to Newsweek magazine, out of 165 countries.)

No. 165 is Chad, in Central Africa. Iceland (#1) gets a 100 rating overall, and the U.S. (#8) receives an 89.89, while Chad gets a 0. Israel is #51 on the list, with a 78 rating, not far above Mexico (53) with a 77.5. At no. 27 and a 83.8 rating, Greece surpasses its neighbors Italy (59/76.1) and Turkey (114/56.2).

No surprise that Yemen has a 0 rating in the politics department, while the Solomon Islands rates a 0 in the justice category.  Finland rates 100 in politics, whereas Saudi Arabia receives a 5. China has a 100 rating in education, while Armenia has a 99.3 in education. What drags these and other nations down is the lack of women in politics. As we can imagine, Afghanistan gets only 41.1 in education, beating Pakistan’s 34 education rating, while Chad has a 0.
