Global gender gap

by Abby Lois

Introduction to Cartography is in some ways a misnomer: students start out with little to no background in map design, but by the end of the semester they are making professional quality, award-winning static maps and cultivating unique and creative styles. The class culminates in a final project of creating a map of their choice. It talks about the inequality that still occurs between men and women in education, health, economy and politics. The cartography states that no country has reached full gender equality, though Iceland is the best place to live for women. One of the innumerable reasons is the concession to allow the participation of women in the labor market, being the highest percentage in the world (88%).
