The breakdown - and what the rankings don't reveal
In the category of inequality (which looked at data on the gender wage gap, sanitary product tax rates and human trafficking) New Zealand ranked well, taking third spot behind Norway and Sweden, respectively.
NZ also scored well in the women in work category - which looked at the percentage of women in middle and senior management positions and governmental and founder positions.
In the infrastructure category, we did fairly well, ranking 17th.
In the legislation category, NZ's score was both ironic and disappointing.
