Finland is the best place in the world to be a mother, according to Save the Children’s 14th Mothers’ Index. The US, (where most Nigerians run to) is ranked 30th, while our beloved Nigeria is ranked 169…it’s in the bottom 10.*sigh*
The index ranked countries according to 5 indicators of a mother’s well-being: 1. Maternal health (the risk of maternal mortality); 2. Children’s well-being (the mortality rate of children under five); 3. Educational status (number of years of formal schooling a woman receives); 4. Economic status (gross national income per capita); and 5. Political status (the participation of women in national government). See the top 10 and bottom 10 after the cut…
