The 2014 edition of the Social Institutions and Gender Index is now out: a cross-country measure of discrimination against women in 160 countries. The SIGI covers five dimensions of discriminatory social institutions, spanning major socio-economic areas that affect women’s lives: discriminatory family code, restricted physical integrity, son bias, restricted resources and assets, and restricted civil liberties. If you’re into statistics, you can look up country-specific data here; otherwise, read The Guardian’s summary here. Whichever way you look at it though, we’ve still got a long way to go. Gender inequality is one of the main driving factors of violence against women – this is your issue…and we can all do something about it.
