Doing It for Themselves

“If you are a working woman, you would do well to move to New Zealand,” according to The Economist, who have compiled their own “‘glass-ceiling index’ to show where women have the best chance of equal treatment at work.’” “Based on data mainly from the OECD, [the index] compares five indicators across 26 countries: the number of men and women respectively with tertiary education; female labour-force participation; the male-female wage gap; the proportion of women in senior jobs; and net child-care costs relative to the average wage. New Zealand scores high on all the indicators.”
