Join the launch of the third edition of the global Women, Peace and Security Index, which provides a comprehensive measure of women’s wellbeing and their empowerment around the world. The 2021 WPS Index features new country rankings, sub-national data for Afghanistan and Pakistan, and an analysis of displaced women’s status in five African nations.
