Melinda, Bill and a girl born in the Sahel – spot the difference
Geography and inequality - here's a topic you've probably thought about when comparing your opportunities in life to those of the rest of humanity. Of course, besides geography, gender also plays a role in it, but that shouldn't come as a surprise for you either.
Starting from the 2019 Goalkeepers Report, Catherine Madden drew how geography and gender stack the deck for (or against) you, based on three (not so fictitious) different human beings: a 'Melinda', a 'Bill' and a girl born in the Sahel.
She also shows the creative process behind the illustration, inspiring you to better communicate inequality in the human experience using your data visualisation skills.
