MAPS IN THE NEWS:
This map from The Economist (UK) highlights some of the 104 countries that have laws prohibiting women from working in certain jobs -- or at all. "Some countries publish lists of jobs deemed too dangerous for women (Russia’s 456 include driving a train or steering a ship). Others stop women from working in entire sectors, at night or in 'morally inappropriate' jobs (in Kazakhstan women cannot bleed or stun cattle, pigs or small ruminants). In four countries women cannot register a business. In 18 a husband can stop his wife working." www.economist.com/graphic-detail/2018/05/24/billions-of-women-are-denied-the-same-choice-of-employment-as-men
