While Thailand has not been involved in any recent international conflicts, it suffers from violence and conflict in the south due to the revivial of a Malay Muslim separatist insurgency in 2004. The conflict is little known, but has claimed more than 3,000 lives and has had painful consequences on the lives of women. Thailand is ranked 75 out of 142 countries listed on the Global Gender Gap Index (GGI) for 2014. Thailand acceded to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in 1985. Thailand signed the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) on 25 November 2015. In 2017, Thailand spent $6.33 bln on military spending. Violence against women continues to be a significant problem. While women have the same legal rights as men, they remain subject to economic discrimination in practice, and are vulnerable to abuse, rape, and sex trafficking. Women in Thailand, especially in the south, work hard to organize and advocate for conflict resolution, peacebuilding, women's rights, freedom and equality.
