“The top  most equal countries for multimillionaires [is] a diverse bunch and almost certainly not the ones you would have predicted. It certainly seems that Asia is leading the way in gender equality, perhaps reflecting emerging markets whose developing, increasing wealthy economies are not bound by old forms of gender discrimination in business,” said Josh Spero, editor of Spear’s.
However, Spero cites that since women make up roughly half of the global population, wealth distribution cannot be considered gender equal until at least half of all multimillionaires are women. Even Portugal, the “most equal” country does not come close to that. A number of nations that are considered progressive when it comes to women’s rights are sorely lagging behind those where the rights of women remain a work in progress.
