On the eve of International Women's Day, we look at the 20 best countries in the world to be a woman. The rankings are based on the responses of more than 9,000 women who filled out the U.S. News and World Report Best Countries survey. Each country's ranking is based on five attributes: care about human rights, gender equality, income equality, progress and safety.
