The geographic perspective on women’s literary statistics and clean water availability

Women’s education commonly has great importance in the environmental health of different global regions/locations.  Educated, literate women have the tools needed to help vocalize change and come up with solutions, both for themselves and there families, and for the larger communities they are part of.  Access to clean water is an urgent problem in many parts of the world.  Water is one of the most basic needs for life, health and an a well-functioning society.  Clean water and educated women are both hold high importance in the level of productivity in a community.  The more clean water available in a location, the more healthy people can work and contribute to a working social system.  Furthermore, the more educated a woman is, the more roles she can play in her community and the more she can contribute.

If there is a correlation between clean water and percent of literate women in a nation, than the two problems can be in part tackled together and addressed as a linked problem.  What aspects of a country lead to high levels of literacy in women and larger amounts of clean water?  Viewing this geographically can help us see these correlations.  Below is a map made from QGIS which shows the percent of each countries population that has access to clean water.  Visualizing this helps to better understand possible relationships clean water has in areas to literacy rates in the female populations of these nations.
