...with women managers.

http://www.jamaicaobserver.com/news/Jam ... ILO-report" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

'A new study by the International Labour Organization (ILO) has found that Jamaica has the highest proportion of women managers, globally, ahead of countries like the United States and the United Kingdom. The study also found that while women are still under-represented in top management, the number of women in senior and middle management positions has increased over the last 20 years. The study entitled “Women in Business and Management, Gaining Momentum”, found that the proportion of women managers in Jamaica stood at 59.3 per cent, while Yemen has the least with 2.1 per cent. The US is ranked 15th in the list of 108 countries with 42.7 per cent women managers, while the United Kingdom is at 41st with 34.2 per cent and the Russian Federation holds the 25th place (39.1 per cent). Colombia holds the second place at the global level and ranks first in Latin America, followed by Panama in fifth place. The report presents the findings of a 2013 ILO survey of over 1,200 companies in Africa, Asia and Pacific, Eastern and Central Europe and Latin American and the Caribbean, focusing on measures and initiatives to advance women in management. The survey was carried out with the assistance of national employers’ organizations in 39 countries.'

Costa Rica sixth.

Jamaica moved up from tenth to eighth.

UK slipped from 34th to 40th. It's media spews out biased right wing hatred of jeremy corbyn and the labour party. I haven't seen anything like that in the Caribbean since the days of the Gleaner in the 1970s.

Trinidad ranked higher than UK at 34th. Barbados is a part of the OECS which is ranked 38th.

USA ranked 43rd.

I am not surprised. I have lived in the UK for 17 years and during that time I have seen that the UK media was more biased and has less freedom than the media in Jamaica Trinidad and Barbados.

'A "heavy handed approach" often in the name of national security has seen the UK slip in the rankings of countries with the world's freest press, according to a new report by Reporters Without Borders. Scandinavian countries have the freest press in the world, the non governmental organisation said in its World Press Freedom Index 2017, while the UK is slipping onto "a worrying trend", it said. It added that only 16 countries in the world were rated as "good" this year. At the top of the list, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark lead the way followed by the Netherlands, Costa Rica, Switzerland, Jamaica, Belgium and Iceland.'
