  • Country / Region profile of: Benin

    The status of women in Benin has improved since the passage of the Personal and Family Code of 2004. Benin has not been involved in any large-scale conflicts recently. In spite of the relative peace for the country, women in Benin often face female genital cutting, forced marriages and domestic violence. Benin ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in 1992. Benin is ranked as 126 of the 136 countries listed on the Global Gender Gap Index (GGI). Numerous organizations and the National Council for the Promotion of Gender Equity and Equality are working toward peace and security for women in Benin.
