A map of places in Europe where women are most likely to be in charge

Published on 6 April 2015 at 18:21

This map, published by The Independent and elaborated through International Labour Organisation (ILO) data, is a close-up from a world map ranking countries according to where your boss is most likely to be a woman.
Curiously, some Northern and Central European countries, like the Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, Czech Republic or Austria rank behind Latin countries like Italy or France. Note also that Germany is erroneously called 'Finland'.
