Gender Equality in Latin America

The World Economic Forum released its 2010 report on gender equality around the world last week. This chart details how LatAm countries fare in the world rankings, with the lower your score the better (eg: number 1 ranked for gender equality around the world was Iceland, bottom at number 134 was Yemen).

Best for equality in LatAm was Cuba, ranked 24. Then come Costa Rica in second  (28th in world) and Argentina third (29th in world). Peru slips 16 places to 60th in the world. Surprisingly, Brazil languishes well down the list in 85th place…so much for all that equality imagery, eh? Guatemala sucks.
This table shows the evolution of regional countries over the years. Nicaragua is making a decent fist of improving things it seems, as is Chile
