Site of the Week: Global Gender Gap ReportBy Giorgio Askew
May 10, 2018
In late October 2016, just days before the presidential election, the World Economic Forum released its annual Global Gender Gap Report. First published in 2006, there is now more than a decade worth of data, covering 144 countries measuring gender equality and ranking each country based on calculated gender gaps.
To celebrate the historic event of the first presidential election with a female nominee on the ballot for a major U.S. political party, they decided to compile the data from all 11 reports and create an interactive model of the report indices.
The website takes you on a journey around the world by using a set of colorful moving dots that almost seem like an animated Pixar movie. As you move the cursor across the graph, it almost morphs styles right before your eyes. Not only is the website informative, it is also visually stunning to interact with and watch.
