No, Virginia, the U.S. Does Not Rank Behind Rwanda in Gender Equity . . .

Charlotte Hays

We blogged yesterday on the U.N. women's delegation who spent ten days in the U.S. and pronounced themselves "horrified" by the status of women here.

The U.N. delegation were not the only ones distressed by the downtrodden condition of American women. A new Global Gender Gap report from the prestigious World Economic Forum ranks the U.S., Denmark, and Canada behind Rwanda, Burundi and Nicaragua in gender equity.

Can this be right? The Factual Feminist (aka Christina Hoff Sommers) explains in her latest installment why the report was done and why it got it so wrong.
