Women, Peace, and Security Index

The WPS Index offers a more comprehensive measure of women's wellbeing by capturing both peace and security—and women’s inclusion and justice—for the first time ever. In partnership with the Peace Research Institute of Oslo, we draw on recognized international data sources to rank 153 countries, covering more than 98 percent of the world’s population. The associated tools and analysis highlight key achievements and deficits from each country.
