Title: Woman's Equality Day
Fact: The World Economic Forum released its annual Gender Gap Report in October 2013, which examined the level of gender parity between women and men around the world. The gap is measured across four key areas: health, education, economics, and politics. The report showed that the United States' score had slightly increased, yet its overall ranking in 2013 was 23rd on the list of 136 countries. However, the U.S. tied for first in educational attainment, which looked at access for men and women to basic and higher-level education.
