  • When it comes to gender equality, Sweden is the 4th most gender equal country in the world. This is showed in The Global Gender Gap Report made by the World Economic Forum.

My name is Amanda and I am a 18 year old girl from Sweden. One of my main interests in life is other human beings and their well-being, mostly women and girls. That is why female rights is something I mostly spend my time talking, acting and discussing about and in the future I hope this will represent my daily working life. I hope you'll enjoy reading my posts and just let me know if there is any feedback! Together we can make the world a better place for everyone <3
