http://www.5x5x5.net/jscc/events.php Unofficial, not always 100% up-to-date, but good quality.

Nice to see this. It might be more motivating for females to see such a ranking.

Hi Ron, wouldn't it be very easy to implement into the current "Official-Rankings" page as you can already click the competitors one by one to get that information? That would make it much easier to check female rankings. You could choose the shown genders right next to "Event", "Region" and "Years". Robin

this website is not owned by the WCA. i guess there is not many chances to have female ranking on the official WCA website because WCA rules dont make difference between men and women, and that's great.

Hello, I know there's not much chance of this, but will there ever be an implementation of female rankings? It's obviously not plausible for real-life competitions to be separated by gender as there are not many female speedcubers, but I feel it would still be really useful if the WCA could add this into the current ranking system. I agree with Robin in that it would also be fairly easy to do, as the system already sorts by event, region, and years. Thank you, Sophia

If I wanted to put my ranking on an application/resume, would I be allowed to use this? Thank you for showing me this website by the way. I appreciate it!

Hi, This has been discussed a lot already. The point is : why ? Are male and female any different for solving a cube ? NO. So why should there be a different ranking ? Do you think females are not capable of being as good as males ? I do think (I'm actually absolutely sure) there is just no difference. I am completely certain a woman can be as fast as a guy. There is no gender difference. Training makes the difference. I'm not as good as Kanneti because I didn't choose to train enough. Shelley Chang is not as good as him either, because she didn't train enough. Not because she is a women. So providing an official female ranking would just give the feeling that males are better than womens, which is wrong. And it would maintain the global weird societish idea that males are gloably better than womens, and this is such a thing to hate. Not to debate about the difference between males and females here, but I really don't see the point to wish to have a female ranking when there is just no difference originally.

I can't speak for the WCA, but I personally don't see any problem with you using that ranking since it is definitely a correct fact (if it were on the WCA site, it would be the same ranking).
