The international children's rights organization Save the Children recently released their "Girls' Opportunity Index," which rates the countries of the world where it is best and worst to be a girl.

The index, part of a broader report, makes its assessments using five common indicators: child marriage, teen pregnancy, maternal deaths, women's representation in parliament and girls' graduation rates in school.

We took a closer look at the data and designed the interactive tool below. How does your country rank?
