In Argentina, women have a long history of peace activism, particularly during the Dirty War of the military dictatorship, when Argentine mothers and grandmothers had relentlessly brought attention to the crimes of the military regime and had demanded the safe return of all the disappeared. Though Argentine women have attained a great deal of progress for their human rights, including comparable levels of education as men, women face significant problems with respect to domestic violence and human trafficking. Argentina has not been involved in large-scale conflict or war in recent years. Argentina signed the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in 1980 and ratified 1985. With regards to disarmament, Argentina voted for the adoption of the Arms Trade Treaty, signed on 3rd June 2013, and ratified the Treaty 25th September 2014. Argentina is currently ranked at number 34 of 144 on the Global Gender Gap Index (GGI) of 2017. The Government of Argentina launched its first National Action Plan (NAP) in September 2015 for a period of three years, with no allocated or estimated budget. Argentine women and civil society are still working to close the economic gender gap and ensure the safety of women. Throughout 2016 Argentine women undertook a widespread protest movement in response to increased cases of SGBV and femicide believed to be a backlash against their increased empowerment.
