International Women's Day

This page in:

Iwd_2007_2 March 8 is the International Women's Day but as with many things, numbers speak louder than words. Make sure to visit "Statistics and indicators on women and men." This is the most comprehensive statistical resource on women's position in households, education, work and political decision making available.

There you'll find that women's share in decision making positions, defined as legislators and managers, is the highest in Jamaica and one of the lowest in Algeria – 60 and 5 percent respectively. The U.S., at 42 percent, is at par with Latvia and Lithuania.

Naturally, World Bank has something for today also.
