Women in Northern European nations are closest to equality with men in education, health and wages. That is the finding of a report from the World Economic Forum. The United States is 28th on the group’s list. Recently, President Barack Obama said the government will require large businesses to report how much they pay men and women. This information will be used to target companies that pay women less to do the same jobs. The report found that women worldwide continue to fall behind men on wages. Based on current estimates, they will need 126 years to catch up, according to the report. Women are making progress. But they still only earn what men did 10 years ago, the report says. The World Economic Forum measured the differences between men and women on health, education, political power and economic prospects. Of the 145 nations studied, women have not realized equality in any of the nations included, says the report. Women come closest to equality in four Northern European nations: Iceland, Norway, Finland and Sweden. Ireland rated number five on the list. At the bottom of the ratings are Yemen, Pakistan, Syria, Chad, Iran and Jordan. More women than men are attending colleges and universities in 97 nations. But women make up a majority of skilled workers in only 68 nations. Women control the majority of government and political positions in only four. The World Economic Forum completed its survey in November.
