Posted by grhomeboy in Lifestyle.

Two days ahead of Mother’s Day on Sunday, a survey by an international humanitarian group said that Greece ranks 23rd in the world on a list of 140 countries based on the well-being of mothers.

Save the Children, a US-based organization, ranked the countries on criteria including maternal leave benefits, participation of women in government and the education available to them.

Sweden topped the world list, with Nigeria in last position.

Greek women have a life expectancy of 81 years and are expected to receive 16 years of formal schooling, according to the group.

Greece’s rating regarding the well-being of children places the country at position No 20.

Italy tops the children’s list followed by Iceland.
