We’re No. 31!

Woo-hoooo! The U.S. has slipped to No. 31 in gender equality. The study showed we had made gains, but they had been outpaced by bigger gains in other countries. The Scandanavian countries of Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland held the top four spots, followed by New Zealand.

The Philippines were No. 6, for crying out loud. Family leave acts, more flextime, and more addressing of the glass ceiling would all be starters for improving our world ranking.

Wonder how much airplay smart Democratic candidates, above all Hillary, will give this?
