Country/Region Profile

  • Country / Region profile of: Guinea Bissau

    Women have been greatly affected by the ongoing political instability in Guinea-Bissau, as the Government is unable or unwilling to enforce gender equality legislation, while society continues to practice discriminatory social customs and traditions. Guinea-Bissau has faced long periods of conflicts and instability due to frequent transitions of government and the prevalence of drug trafficking. Guinea-Bissau acceded to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) in 1985 and is not ranked in the 2013 Global Gender Gap Index (GGI). Women activists continue to advocate for peace and a greater emphasis in legislation promoting gender equality and women's public participation.
