Because gender equality is still a sensitive issue in some parts of the world, you might be tempted to ask yourself what are the best places in the world to be a woman.

I used to volunteer in some projects that advocated for equality and human rights, and that’s why I wanted to approach this topic.

Even though, sadly, in some countries women are having a lot of problems just for being women, there are also a lot of other best places in the world to be a woman.

1. Iceland

A lot of studies have shown the fact that among the best places in the world to be a woman, the most suitable is Iceland, a country that apparently has the greatest equality between men and women if you take into account different fields like education, politics, health and employment.

How lucky for the women of Iceland!

2. Sweden

Another wonderful country that supports equality between genders is Sweden.

This amazing country even has different institutions that have as a main objective to support and advocate equality between men and women, institutions like The Swedish Arts Council or The Swedish Film Institute that launched different initiatives to improve gender equality in the arts.

Also, Sweden is the best place for women in what concerns their right to choose.

3. Luxembourg

Studies have shown the fact that Luxembourg (followed very closely by Norway) is the best place for women to earn money.2

In this country, there are no differences between men and women in what concerns the size of their paycheck and that’s why, men and women are as likely to earn the same amount of money.

Well, that’s only fair!

4. Denmark

The lucky women of Denmark have more time for doing pleasant things, for hobbies and for leisure, because they apparently spend only 57 more minutes each day on unpaid work (like different chores around the house, cooking or cleaning) than men.

In comparison, studies show that British women spend two hours more per day doing unpaid work than men and Mexican women even spend four hours and 21 minutes more on unpaid work than men.
