Women’s rights country by country – interactive

Which countries have laws preventing violence? Which legislate for gender equality? And which countries allow abortion?

Select a region and hover over a country to see how it has legislated for violence, harassment, abortion, property and employment rights, discrimination and equality. Country data can be viewed in relation to its population size and those of its neighboring states.
