Where does Slovakia stand in the ranking of countries with the best working environment for women?

Sometimes it can be difficult to be a working woman, from wage differentials to discrimination in the workplace and obstacles to progressing beyond the career path. 

The fact that women often do not feel valued, or are confronted with the fact that their superiors are unable to enable them to advance in their careers, can have a negative impact on the involvement of women in companies. And that has a direct impact on the whole of society. However, the situation varies from country to country, so where is the best place in the world to be a working woman? And how is Slovakia compared with countries all over the world? The SmartSurvey has compiled a ranking of countries based on a number of factors, such as the gender pay gap, how many women are part of the overall workforce and in senior positions. And here’s the result:

Slovakia is in terms of occupation 10th best place for women in the world.

For example, SmartSurvey research, which reveals the best places for women to work, found that Norway is the number one most ideal country for working women. And Mexico got the lowest score.
