A recent study has revealed which are the best countries women live in. If you are a woman thinking of immigrating alone, stay tuned as we will share important information with you!

The Women, Peace and Security Index, created by the Institute for Women at Georgetown University, analyses women’s inclusion, access to justice and security in 170 countries through 11 indicators.

At the top of the ranking, the Nordic countries lead in quality of life for women. Norway, Finland and Iceland make up the top three, while Brazil is in 80th position, tied with Fiji and Suriname. The country obtained an average of 0.734 on a scale of 0 to 1, while the global average is 0.721. Portugal achieved a good position, in 18th place com uma média de 0.868

The study captures and quantifies the three dimensions of women’s inclusion(economic, social and political), justice (formal laws and informal discrimination) and security (at the individual, community and societal levels). The trends show that overall advancement in the status of women has declined and disparities have widened across countries.
