Denmark is the best country in the world for women to live in, according to a new report.
The US News and World Report survey contains the views of 7,000 women, who were asked to score countries on five attributes – including gender equality, income equality, safety and its progressiveness.
The aim of the list revised by brand strategy firm BAV Consulting and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, was to “gauge global perceptions of the world’s biggest economies in terms of specific attributes associated with countries”.
The report stated Denmark may be „among the world’s highest taxed, endure long winters and watch the sunset before 4pm, but Danish women still remain the envy of the world”.
Researchers of the report suggest the consistently high ranking for Denmark, which came 10th in the overall list of the world’s best countries, is down to its “generous welfare state”.
