Tuesday Newsday: Women’s Status Worldwide

Women’s Status Worldwide: Best and Worst Places | Secrets to Your Success – Yahoo! Shine.

Hi Everyone,

Yesterday I read the article linked above on Yahoo! that talked about the best and worst places for Women to live in the world on a variety of factors.

One thing that surprised me, was this quote:

“The U.S. ranks 40 out of 181 countries and has not improved its maternal mortality rate (as many as 17 per 100,000) in the last 100 years.”

I understand that the US is 40 out of 181, but that it hasn’t improved its maternal mortality rate in 100 years is a bit shocking when you think about how far technology has come, isn’t it?

Please let me know your thoughts below…
