‘Save the Children’ International Nongovernmental Organization made a rating of the best countries to live and development of girls.
Save the Children was founded in the UK in 1919. Its main task is to improve the lives of children around the world through education, health programs and providing more opportunities.
In making the rating of 144 countries, its creators took into account five major factors: the level of maternal mortality and teenage pregnancy, early marriage and the percentage of girls who received incomplete secondary education, as well as the rate of women’s representation in parliament and government.
Experts have placed Uzbekistan on the 38th place between Mongolia and Trinidad and Tobago.
For comparison, the US ranked 32nd.
The last place in the list goes to Niger, where around 76% of women are married before they reach 18.
