Australian women most economically advanced in the world
An international survey has found that Australian women are the most empowered in the world when it comes to education, market participation and anti-discrimination policies.
ON the back of Gillard’s misogyny speech last week a global survey has found that Australian women are the most economically empowered females in the world.
The global survey, undertaken by international consulting and management firm Booz & Company, found that women in Australia were the most empowered in regards to access to education, market participation and anti-discrimination policies. Out of 128 countries Australia came in the lead position of allowing females agency in their country’s social and political systems.
New Zealand was fifth in the survey, with Norway, Sweden and Finland coming in between the antipodean nations. Yemen, Pakistan, Sudan and Chad were at the bottom of the list.
The survey found that 1 billion women around the world are expected to enter the global workforce over the next decade.
