Women around the world have made significant gains in terms of education, but still have a long way to go in terms of political and economic clout.

The Gender Gap Report by the World Economic Forum used United Nations data to determine that the U.S. ranks 27th for women's equality.

While that's ahead of countries like Russia and China, it's far below Trinidad and Tobago, and even Cuba.
