The 2013 Global Gender Gap Index from the World Economic Forum is out. It measures overall equality between women and men in 136 countries. Is the USA number one? We rank 23rd in the world, just behind Barundi in the Global Gender Gap Index. Unlike the US,, governments in countries at the top of the list make it possible for parents to combine work and family. No one can argue that we’re not in the world’s top tier when it comes to standard of living -- it's just that women in the good ol’ U.S. of A don’t quite have the same standard as men. Maybe we can learn from those countries that are doing it right.
