Country/Region Profile

  • Country / Region profile of: Angola

    Women in Angola benefit from the constitution's prohibition of discrimination based on gender. From 1975 until 2002, Angola experience civil unrest. Throughout this conflict, women and children were particularly affected, including the use of women as rewards for soldiers following a victory. Recently, Congolese and Angolan authorities have expelled immigrants from both countries across the border. This deportation has been accompanied by sexual assault for many female immigrants. Angola acceded to The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in 1986. Currently, Angola is ranked at 92 of 136 on the Global Gender Gap Index (GGI). Civil society organizations continue to work to ensure that there is equality in Angola for women in practice to match their legal rights.
