The 21 best countries in the world to live in if you're a woman

[USA women]mangostock / Shutterstock Denmark has overtaken Sweden as the best country in the world to live in for women, according to a 2018 ranking from US News & World Report. Ahead of International Women's Day in March, the media organisation surveyed more than 9,000 women as part of its wider Best Countries ranking in order to determine which of 80 countries around the globe are the best for women to live in. The full 2018 Best Countries List surveyed 21,000 business leaders, informed elites, and general citizens to discover how 80 countries are perceived on a global scale for a range of criteria, from economic influence to citizenship and quality of life. The Best Countries for women were given a score out 10 on these five attributes: Human rights, gender quality, income equality, progress, and safety. Scroll down to see the 21 best countries in the world to live in if you're a woman, ranked in ascending order. 21. POLAND. THIS RIGHT-LEANING COUNTRY IS SLIGHTLY LACKING ACROSS ALL SCORES, WITH JUST 0.8 FOR INCOME EQUALITY AND 2.5 FOR PROGRESSION, BUT ITS AVERAGE SCORES OF 5.3 FOR GENDER EQUALITY AND 5.3 FOR HUMAN RIGHTS GAVE IT A SPOT ON THIS LIST.

Turkish lira crisis: Turkey raises tariffs on US goods – business live

All the day’s economy and financial news, as Ankara hikes the tariffs on US rice, spirits and cars * Turkey hits US with new tariffs * Rice, spirits and cars all hit * Turkey: We’re responding to US attacks * Lira rallies, as Turkish regulators tighten swap rules 2.28pm BST A COURT IN ISTANBUL HAS DECIDED TO RELEASE THE HONORARY CHAIR OF AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL TURKEY, TANER KILIC AFTER MORE THAN FOURTEEN MONTHS BEHIND BARS. Kilic had been detained in June 2017 and charged with membership of a terrorist organisation, which he denies. Turkish court rules to release local @amnesty chair #TanerKilic who was jailed for over a year on terror charges. Earlier, another court had released two Greek soldiers charged of espionage. Interesting coincidence of timing when still no word on release of US pastor Brunson Beneath the smiles of joy and relief there will be sorrow, anger and a steely determination. Sorrow for all the things Taner has missed during his cruel incarceration. Anger that the baseless charges against him and the Istanbul 10 have not been dropped. And determination to continue our fight for human rights in Turkey and for the release of all those human rights defenders, journalists and others who have been unjustly jailed in the vicious crackdown. 1.46pm BST ARTJOM HATSATURJANTS, research analyst at ACCENDO MARKETS, says investors are nervous over the “geopolitical back-and-forth between US and Turkey”. Neither side appears ready to back down over recent confrontation that sent the Turkish lira to new lows and raised a spectre of FX contagion across Europe. Continue reading...
