It has been revealed that Ireland’s gender gap is now one of the lowest in the world! In fact Ireland is now in the top 5 countries to be a woman terms of education, health and politics according to the Gender Gap Index 2012. Ireland ranks in behind Iceland, Finland, Norway and Sweden.
Education levels in particular amongst Irish women were also particularly high. Irish women are more likely to go on to secondary and third level education than anywhere else in the world.
Other notables were Britain who came in 18th place, Germany secured 13th position, the United States at 22. France surprisingly came in very low on the list as they hit number 56.
Just another great reason to plan Ireland vacations.
