The SIGI 2019

The SIGI 2019 shows that clear progress has been made with political commitments to eliminate gender inequality. New legislation enhances equality and abolishes discriminatory laws, including through gender-transformative programmes and action plans. However, political commitments, legal reforms and gender-sensitive programmes in many countries are still not being translated into real changes for women and girls. Gender-based discrimination remains a lifelong and heterogeneous challenge for women and girls. Locally designed solutions combined with adequate legislation are needed for more social change to take hold.

The fourth edition of the SIGI ranks 120 economies included in the classification below. The remaining 60 countries are not ranked due to missing data for one or more indicators. Countries and territories are grouped by level of discrimination, to assist the interpretation of the data and results.
