Women, Peace and Security Index Launch

The 2023 Women, Peace and Security Index, which ranks 177 countries in terms of women’s status, launched in New York on Oct. 24, 2023 at a special event hosted by Permanent Missions of Norway, UAE, and South Africa. The index was published in partnership with the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO).
“When women are doing well, everyone in society is doing well and the data empirically back that up,” said GIWPS research manager and lead author of the Index, Elena Ortiz.
