7. Canada

America’s neighbour to the north rounds out the list of the top 7 world’s most feminist countries. Canada’s upper houses of government are made up of nearly 40% women - one of the highest percentages in the world. The country still has room to grow in terms of women’s rights, but is still a great place to visit. From the verdant forests of British Columbia to the French-speaking province of Quebec, Canada is an enormous country blessed with unparalleled natural beauty.

Are there any surprises for you in the world’s most female-friendly countries? I knew about Iceland and New Zealand, but didn’t know the list would be so dominated by the Scandinavian countries.
