ISRAEL - Ranked 30th in Gender Equality

Arno Froese

Israel was ranked 30th out of 100 countries in female opportunity and achievement in an index compiled by German neobank N26.

The Female Opportunity Index looks at the advancement in equality and career opportunities for women in the 100 selected countries with comparable data, and focuses on political and corporate leadership, gender wage gaps, legal support, maternity leave and more.

The study also focused on the number of women each country had working and studying in the typically male-dominated arena of STEM—the academic disciplines of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The average salary and gender wage gap across all fields was also calculated.

Each country was then given a score between 50-100, with 50 being the lowest and 100 being the highest.

Israel ranked 30th overall, with a total score of 84.55. Norway came first, followed by Finland, Iceland, the UK and then Germany. The United States was placed 48th and Pakistan placed last with the lowest possible total score of 50.

“At N26 we firmly believe that everyone, regardless of gender, should have the opportunity and freedom to live the lives they chose,” said Adrienne Gormley, COO of N26. “And yes, there’s much more to life than money, but we think it’s a good place to start. When we feel in control of our finances, we feel more confident, more independent and more optimistic about our future, helping us to reach our full potential.”

Arno's Commentary

Equal rights is the primary slogan in our days. This tendency will continue. Humanity follows the pattern established and dominated by democracy, fueled by merchandise. 

We are reminded here of the US Constitution: “All men are created equal.” However, that equality was originally strictly reserved for the wealthy landowners. In our days, however, it seems to be spreading like wildfire. Why? Because the prince of darkness, the god of this world, is in the process of creating a truly global society based on equality, which will manifest itself in the mark of the beast. 

His aim? To have all the world worship him, albeit temporarily.
