World Wide Women-new page

I shall shortly be publishing a new page under World Wide Women. As (unintentionally) the other pages were all about mainly Islamic countries, the new page will be about India, which has a mix of Muslims, Hindus and Christians. For this page, I was lucky to be able to conduct an interview with an Indian priest who is currently studying in Ireland. Thus, I had first-hand information to use when writing the page.

My interviewee is a teacher, so the main topic of the page is education, although I have discussed several other issues as well. While I was finding statistics for the page, I updated the other World Wide Women pages. The Gender Equality Ranking is now from the Gender Inequality Index in the Human Development Report 2014, instead of 2013. The women in the workforce percentages have also been updated. They are from the same report, from 2012 findings, which seemed to be the most recent findings currently available.

Anyway, I hope you will check out the page on India soon, and leave a comment if you feel so inclined!

A new page-Pakistan

I just wanted to say that I have added a new page about Pakistan to ‘World Wide Women’. It talks about the efforts of Pakistani women to gain more rights and about the position of Pakistani women in the health and education sector, in sport and in the media. This is a link to it or you can find it under the World Wide Women heading. If you are interested in the page you might also like my pages about ┬áSaudi Arabia and Iran. The next page I plan to do will be about India. Please comment if you like the page!
