Which Countries Support Women?

To do well as a woman professionally, it might be prudent to situate yourself in a country that treats you well and supports your ambitions.

Earlier in the year, Forbes released its list of the ten best countries for women (not necessarily for women starting a business).  The Women in Business blog captured it:

10 Best Countries for Women in 2012 (Spoiler Alert:  U.S. Did Not Make the Cut)

Which country made No. 1?  Iceland.

  1. Iceland: Taking the top spot for the third year in a row, Iceland is “lauded for its women in political and economic positions of leadership.”

    The list of the 10 best countries for women is a heterogeneous mix; some of the countries in the list belong to the 3rd world countries and some are developed countries. Any idea why the US didn’t make it to the list?
