Abstract
Even with all the progress women have made in the modern era, we wanted to see how gender inequality persisted in the educational sphere, particularly when categorizing nations by development. To do this, we obtained data on poverty, literacy rates and GNI per capita and analyzed the correlation with the expected level of education for women in one hundred different countries. What we found confirmed our suspicions: expected education levels were positively correlated with GNI per capita and literacy rates while showing a negative correlation with poverty rates.
