Women have run Sri Lanka for 23 years, while dozens of countries, including Spain and Sweden, have never had a female head of government. Sri Lanka is a small miracle partly due to the compact physical diversity of this pearl-shaped island – but, as we shall see, this diversity extends to virtually every aspect of life. Fringed by variously-shaped sublime beaches, from straight expanse to rocky cove, the island possesses a coastal plain containing a host of geographic features such as lagoons, wetlands, rivers and various types of wildlife-rich jungle.
Iceland has the greatest equality between men and women, taking into account politics, education, employment and health indicators. The worst is Yemen, and the most dangerous is Afghanistan. This mid-Atlantic island is the USA’s closest European neighbor. With a flight time from New York less than five hours, you’re ready for action as soon as you arrive. There’s also plenty of choice for relaxing indulgence and pampering yourself.
Rwanda is the only nation in which females make up the majority of parliamentarians. Women hold 45 out of 80 seats. The countries, such as Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Qatar, Oman and Belize, have no women in parliament. “The land of a Thousand Hills”, Rwanda is a green ondulating landscape of hills, gardens and tea plantations. Rwanda is a thriving, safe country with one of the lowest crime rates in Africa. All major attractions are located within 1-5 hour drive from the capital, Kigali.
Norway is the world’s best place to be a mother, with low risks of maternal mortality — one in 7,600 — and skilled help at nearly all births. The worst is Afghanistan, where a woman is at least 200 times more likely to die during childbirth than from bombs or bullets. Experience northern lights or midnight sun above the Arctic Circle, or visit the world famous Norwegian fjords with tall mountains and glaciers.
Literacy rates among women in Lesotho exceed those of men, with 95 per cent of women able to read and write, compared with 83 per cent of men. The worst country is Ethiopia, where only 18 per cent of women can read and write, compared with 42 per cent of men. High in the mountains of Southern Africa, unique in that it is an independent nation completely surrounded by South Africa, is the Kingdom of Lesotho — the Kingdom in the Sky. An extraordinary country that provides spectacular mountain scenery as a backdrop to some of the most exciting holiday activities in Africa, Lesotho offers the chance to enjoy Africa’s majestic beauty, the simplicity of a mountain people, and a serene quality of life for discerning travellers from all over the world. A magnificent opportunity to explore nature still little changed by man, still unspoilt by crowds of tourists, and to appreciate the untamed but beautiful landscapes of the soaring Maluti and Drakensberg mountains.
Greece is the world’s safest place to give birth, with a one in 31,800 risk of dying in childbirth. The worst place to have a baby is thought to be the world’s newest country, South Sudan. There are fewer than 20 midwives in the whole country. Imagine yourself lying on a sandy beach… now feel the warmth of sun on your skin, let your eyes focus somewhere in the midst of the archipelagos, smell the iodine of algae, listen to the sound of sea as it embraces the wet sand and rocks…you are in one of the 6.000 Greek islands and you live the ultimate experience of relaxation and freedom! Discovering the soul of a Greek city is much more than a quick tour around its monuments and sightseeing. Open spaces in Greece and especially in its busy Athens capital, offer a unique feeling of freedom. “Openness” is very much a part of the Greek culture, history, lifestyle, entertainment and character. Sink your body into a natural pool. Let the warmness of the water engulf every inch of you, release the tension and worship the wild vegetation covering the surroundings.. Ease your mind and soul with the help of the thermal spas.
