O2 #2 Women, Thinking About Relocating? (via Freakonomics)
In honor of International Women’s Day, Foreign Policy has a roundup of five surprisingly good places to be a woman. The Philippines, Spain, South Africa/Lesotho, Latvia, and Cuba all make their list.

Latvia’s first female president, Vaira Vike-Freiberga, oversaw Latvia’s entrance into the European Union in 2004.”
