Default Number 1!!!!!

UAE is top globally For treating women with respect apparently.

http://www.socialprogressimperative....im2,dim3,idr45

Pretty poor on everything else, from slavery to obesity and traffic death, on the GDP comparison, but Gulf News and co can gloss over that...

Tolerance for homosexuals is of course n/a

There's a PDF of all nations scores here - some intesting stuff

The important word in the report is ... CITIZEN.. they don't really give a F*"£ about the rights of anybody else
"It includes 54 measures that track the capacity of a society to meet the basic human needs of its citizens, to establish the building blocks that allow citizens and communities to enhance and sustain the quality of their lives, and to create the conditions for all individuals to reach their full potential."

Default Re: Number 1!!!!!

Who ever made this poll is an imbecile . Are housemaids and female blue collar service staff treated humanely.

Edit
I see Patsy has cleared it up; only applies to citizens. Even so , local women aren't as free as women in the West. Can they wear whatever they want and marry/date whoever they want without intimidation and abuse from authorities and family?

Default Re: Number 1!!!!!

The comments are very patronising. They have the 'deepest respect' for women? As if we were some kind of sub-species or a totally different kind of creature. How about just treating everyone as equal?

And Saudi Arabia are above the UK - they don't even let their women drive FFS.

What a bucket of shite this survey clearly is.

Exactly.

For respect, read subjugation that claims to be respect.

In every measure bar one (Ecosystem Sustainability) UAE scores lower (often appreciably lower) than UK.

And how on Earth does any country in which the entire nation is forced to follow the same religion score 75/100 for Personal Freedom and Choice?


The following quotation is taken from The Social Progress website, as being part of its raison d'etre:

«What if countries competed with each other to become the most socially innovative in the world?»
— Matthew Bishop, New York Bureau Chief, The Economist

In the first case, Matthew, its "with one another", and in the second case if patent nonsense is produced by the team assembled to measure the progress, then the answer to "what if" is "**** all".
