    The USA will never make it to the list that Nicaragua, Rwanda and Namibia have.

    That's usually OK by me.

    Rwanda - Women hold 40% of technical and professional roles, and women outnumber men in parliament.

    Namibia - Twice as many women than men are enrolled in higher education.

    No African Country on this list; however India is on the rankings at #49:
    The title of the link is the same as OP, however this links to a different list of 60 countries.
    As expected most high ranking ones are European countries. Surprisingly China is not on the list.

    The rankings will change with the parameters you use. Look at the parameters that World Economic Forum used to make the rankings.

    That will be a good pickup line.

    That’s a tactic used by Trump take something that sounds similar and give it a new meaning that is totally irrelevant to the original.

    I think you are equating it to a place to migrate, it’s not about that.

    No, I didn't equate it to migration as the U.S. will remain in the top 5 or 10 to migrate to for a long time.

    The list is titled "The 10 best countries to be a woman." I viewed it as something like: "If you are to be born a woman, these are the 10 best countries to choose."

    I wish the title was less misleading. At the least, the title should include "gender gap" in it. Or, "gender equality" or "gender parity." The list measures gender disparity in a country based on: Economic Participation, Educational Attainment, Health and Survival, Political Empowerment. The list is about the progress countries have made in these categories. Doing well in these categories does not make a country among the best countries to be a woman. And, being in the bottom half of this list does not make a country a bad one for a woman.
