When it comes to equal rights for women around the world, progress always seems painfully slow, but there are a few bright spots in legal advancement that are worth celebrating.
The World Bank studied 143 countries in “Women, Business and the Law 2014” and found mostly bad news. About 90 percent of the time, at least one law is gender-biased and restricts women in a way that men were free.
Then there are these countries, and a handful of others, that have managed to make life a little bit better for women and girls. We’re grateful for every baby step to equality.
