Portugal near top for working women

Despite growing attention to the gender pay gap, the #MeToo movement and calls to improve opportunities for women in the workplace over the past year, the Economist's 2019 glass-ceiling index suggests that progress for women in the workplace has stalled.

The index is a yearly assessment of where women have the best and worst chances of equal treatment at work.

Portugal is listed close to the top, and is placed eighth, with Sweden placed first.

Germany is 21st on the ranking and Britain 24th out of 29 countries surveyed.
