Some thoughts on our next visitation project:

Fill the area of the woman/ man shape to show percentages, this is double use of data ink proving data which is also a label.

However will almost certainly need a line are faded color to show the rest of the male female shape to allow an idea of the percentage to beĀ  gained.

Use only half male/female shapes to reduce duplication, and allow easier comparison

possibly reinforce the heights with a black line, this is a waste of ink, and is duplication but I believe it will aid in visual pop-out.

For anyone reading this wants to know more about graphics I would recommend
