Countries ranked in new study on sex discrimination

Article here. Excerpt:

'Women are better off in more countries than men are, a new study has found.  

A method that assesses the forms of hardship and discrimination facing men and women has revealed males have it harder in 91 countries out of 134. 

Women were disadvantaged in only 43. 

The study looked at 6.8 billion people around the world and scientists developed a new way of measuring gender inequality. 

The UK, the US and Australia all discriminate against men more whereas Italy, Israel and China are harder environments for women, according to the study. 

Researchers say this is due to men receiving harsher punishments for the same crime, compulsory military service and more occupational deaths than women.'
