If you’re a woman with big dreams you may want to move there

A recent study released by the International Labor Organization (ILO) and published by the Washington Post shows that nearly a third of all businesses around the world are now owned or managed by women. Additionally, women now hold roughly 40 percent of jobs around the globe. While these numbers may seem encouraging, there is still a long way to go. For example, in the United States, women hold less than 20 percent of all corporate board seats. In most developed countries, women are underrepresented on the boards of large corporations.

In developing countries, however, women seem to have more opportunity. Jamaica reigns supreme with close to 60 percent women managers. Colombia and Saint Lucia rank next with 53 and 52 percent respectively. Beyond these three, the Philippines comes in fourth with just under 48 percent female managers.

The countries with the lowest number of employed women managers are Yemen, Pakistan, and Algeria with 4.9, 3, and 2.1 percent of women bosses. The rest of the bottom ten are from countries in the Middle East and North Africa.
