Sweden Ranked #1 for Women and Children

March 12, 2017

According to an annual survey of the best countries in the world was released on Tuesday by U.S. News & World Report, along with Y&R’s BAV Consulting and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Their 2017 rankings prioritized countries that enjoyed some measure of peace, quiet and prosperity.

Switzerland was the best country in the world, but what I was happy to see was that Sweden was ranked #1 for women and children. This is not surprising given the extensive benefits for women in this country when it comes to maternity leave and workplace equality. Click below for the article featured in the NY Times.
