The 2008 Global Gender Gap Report Is Here! (repeat 2X)

The World Economic Forum has released its annual ranking of gender gaps worldwide. Among other things, it looks at how well countries divide resources and opportunities between men and women.

Its top 20 pioneers:
The United States comes in at #27. That's up four spots from last year, but still below bellwether countries like Sri Lanka and Lesotho!

There are no countries where women rate as high or higher than men with regard to factors like professional opportunities, education, health care, and political/economic decision-making.

Wow.
