GENEVA, SWITZERLAND - Does the gender pay gap bother you?  If it does, here's a number that will bother you even more because the World Economic Forum says it will take 118 years for that gap to close.

The good news is we're all gonna be out of our cellphone contracts by then.  Only in 2133, experts say men and women across the globe will finally be paid the same amount of money for the same type of job.

The ten worst countries for women right now are Yemen, Pakistan, Syria, Chad, Iran, Jordan, Morocco, Lebanon, Mali and Egypt.   Iceland and the Scandinavian countries are at the top of the list.  The surprise: Rwanda, in 6th place, an African country that outperformed the U.S. and the U.K.  But let's not forget that not long ago there was a genocide over there, and women had to step up and take on new roles and responsibilities.

In conclusion, progress is moving pretty slowly.  Guess who's driving.
