Country/Region Profile

  • Country / Region profile of: Maldives

    Women in the Maldives were at the forefront of the protests against the coup resulting in the ousting of President Nasheed in 2012. Nasheed was the democratically elected President who put an end to the thirty-year dictatorship of Maumoon Abdul Gayoom. Maldives ranks 97 out of 136 countries in the 2013 Global Gender Gap Index (GGI), and acceded to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) in 1993. While the women's rally in support of President Nasheed was the largest women's gathering in Maldivian history, cultural, religious and social norms of the country, in certain circumstances, do not promote women’s equal participation. Women in the Maldives are severely underrepresented in the Government and there is a lack of legislation that target their interests even though Maldives stands relatively higher in development indicators than other countries in the region.

    "I pray for a world where its people live and not exist, a world where its people can speak freely and be heard freely; a world and its people who can live in peace with themselves and with others and from which we can die in peace, in the honest belief that we have done our bit to make the world a better place for the citizens of the world of tomorrow." - Mariya Ahmed Didi
