Great seeing some big progress in countries w/ the most-improved scores in this yrs @WorldBank WBL Report: Saudi Arabia, UAE, Nepal, South Sudan, Sao Tome and Principe, Bahrain, DRC, Djibouti, Jordan, and Tunisia.

NEW: The @WorldBank's 2020 WBL Report shows the global avg score is 75.2, meaning the avg woman has ¾ of the legal rights for economic empowerment afforded to men.
