If you’re interested in gender equality (which we really hope you are) here is a phenomenal resource that provides thorough data and analysis for every country in 2013, focusing on economic participation and opportunity, educational attainment, health and survival, and political empowerment.

Check out this article about the movement that created disgusting campaigns such as “Don’t Be That Lying Feminist,” “Don’t Be That Princess,” and Don’t Be That Bitch,” in response to an anti-rape campaign in Canada that is credited to reducing rape by 10% by Canadian police.
