A few months ago, The Nassau Guardian reported on a report on gender equality by the World Economic Forum. I saved this news as material for a future piece on The First Say, but as it turns out, that would be duplicating the fine work of the WEF. The report website already does a pretty good job of visualising the information and putting it in context for us.
While the whole piece is pretty information-dense, there are a couple of visualization highlights that help us understand the data. A quick glance confirms the Guardian's analysis that we are ahead in education equality, but far far behind in political participation. This puts us ahead of many other countries, but we obviously still have a long way to go.
So go check it out. And keep these those numbers in mind when you listen to the rhetoric of some of our political leaders as we approach the upcoming elections.
