"In our own research, the country that holds some of the most significant lessons doesn’t rank at the top or the bottom, although a decade ago, it almost surely would have come close to last. In 2003, after decades of civil war, Rwanda’s transitional government passed legislation requiring that a third of the seats in Parliament be held by women. Today, its Parliament is more than 50 percent women, and girls are enrolled in secondary school at the same rate as boys. Last year the World Economic Forum ranked Rwanda first among East African nations in economic innovation."Oh, and incase you were wondering, the United States placed 8th. They had an overall score of 89.8 compared to Canada's score of 96.6!

"In one of the few jobs I've had apart from golf," Clarke says, "I worked in a nightclub, setting up the bar. One day, after I'd been there a couple of hours, a call came through that a bomb was ready to go off in 15 minutes. Everyone cleared out. Sure enough, exactly 15 minutes later, the whole place was flattened. I'd been 10 yards from the bomb for two hours. You say, growing up, that you get used to it. But you don't."

Many women would agree that dating a taller man is ideal…. so what’s a girl to do if she happens to be a towering 6 foot 8 inches tall? Well, she could hope to link up with a NBA Center (See Shaquille O’Neal or Andrea Bargnani) or she could become a professional model! Meet Amazon Eve, the World’s Tallest Model. She was recently granted the title by the Federation of World Records and is waiting to be measured by Guinness World Records for their official recognition.
When you think tall, this girl has it all. She has a 40” inseam, 38” arms and a size 14 shoe size! At age 14 Eve was 5 foot 11 inches tall, and grew an additional 9 inches in the next 4 years.
Her big break in the modeling world happened in November 2009 when she was featured on the cover of the Australian Edition of Zoo Weekly, a men’s magazine. Since then, Amazon Eve’s lengthy figure has graced magazines, newspapers, and websites in over 27 countries around the world. Aside from modeling, Eve has worked as an actor, a personal trainer, and a paralegal, with hopes to complete law school in the near future.
